Today, more than 125 years after the first pressing of <em>The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn</em>, there's a new set of artistic characters in Twain's boyhood home.<p>Looking uphill from the bank of the Mississippi River, it's hard to remember Hannibal was almost gutted by a massive flood in 1993.
