In Down the Mississippi: A Modern-day Huck on Americas River Road, Moore introduces us to a cast of ordinary Americans who share steadfast determination in a time of economic uncertainty. As he collects their stories, they begin to claim his.

Arriving in Mark Twains Hannibal, Moore is hailed as a modern-day Huck, which is when he realizes that his story is theirs. From that point on, Moore must accept on board as stowaways the spirits of Mark Twain and Huck Finn as he continues to St. Louis and eventually on to New Orleans, Twains regular run as a steamboat pilot.

Whether interviewing a Delta musician singing the economic blues, an Ojibwe dancer sharing a secret tradition, or an inmate doing 25 to life at The Farm, Moores stories are imbued with the most common of all American traits: optimism.
