Come along as Ken Burns takes you on a journey through Sam Clemens’ early days on the Mississippi River, to the small river town of Hannibal, Missouri. Clemens grows up, stumbling from adventure to adventure until he begins to evolve into Mark Twain, the humorist and writer who would revolutionize the way Americans viewed themselves and their language. At the same time, explore the other side of the writer – an American icon who, through tragedy and bad financial decisions, falls hard with failure. In contrast to the wildly successful Twain, Clemens is an inept businessman who squanders his fortunes on pipe dream patents and bad investments. Tune in Tuesday nights at 7 thru 8/5, on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.
