Mark Twain’s Tales of Tahoe Cruise aboard the M.S. Dixie II. boards at 11:30 am and launches at noon. This splendiferous cruise takes us on an excursion into Emerald Bay, around Fannet Island, and home across beautiful blue Lake Tahoe. During the two and a holf hour cruise, the Ghost of Mark Twain will regale the episodes on how Mark Twain came to Tahoe, what he saw, and how we got “Sam Clemens Cove.” Also on the agenda is a history of gambling in Nevada, including colorful characters from Bill Harrah to Frank Sinatra. How does Mark Twain know about Sinatra? Because the reports of my death have been greatly exagerated…

McAvoy Layne is the Ghost of Mark Twain
For 23 years 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 author of the soon to be published, Becoming Mark Twain, and winner of the Nevada award for excellence in school and library service. He portrays the Ghost of Mark Twain in A&E’s biography of Mark Twain and in the Discovery Channel’s Cronkite Award winning documentary, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
