For almost two decades now, in over two thousand performances from Leningrad University in Russia to C-Span, McAvoy Layne has survived, and in fact been preeminent, in preserving the wit and wisdom of "The Wild Humorist of the Pacific Slope," Mark Twain. Says McAvoy, "It's like being a Monday through Friday preacher, whose sermon, though not reverently pious, is fervently American." McAvoy is the author of the biography, Hooked On Twain, and winner of the Nevada award for excellence in school and library service. He portrays Samuel Clemens in A&E's biography of Mark Twain and in the Discovery Channel's Cronkite Award winning documentary, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The Red Mule Ranch is the right place to soak in the spirit of Mark Twain, and McAvoy brings that spirit to life.
