    When I read that ol' Huck had earned a spot at number four on the ALA's list of most frequently challenged books for 2007 I could only think that Twain would be pleased. The criticism: that Twain, while anti-slavery, still reflects the prejudice of the times in his characterization of Jim and his use of the word "nigger". The book was banned immediately upon it's printing in 1884 for being 'crude.' This link is to the first UK printing- digitized from the collection of the Bodleian.
