Family is important but only to a point. Huck is really counter-culture in that way.Although he appreciates his aunt, Huck looks for kindred spirits like Jim. Twain acknowledges old Southern families through the feud between Shepherdsons and the Granngedords. He paints their feud as ridiculous. Families are important as far as they share lineage but I think Twain tries to point ou, with Huck, that families can be made as well with people that one chooses to incorporate into their life.
