    The engraving shows Uncle Silas talking to Huck and Aunt Sally while a crude penis bulges from his pants. The objections are usually over the n-word, which occurs over times in the book. One morning he noticed traces in the snow and got scared that they could belong to his father who was a cruel man. Huck lands a few miles down at Jackson's Island, and there he stumbles across Miss Watson's slave, Jimwho has run away for fear he will be sold down the river. Sometimes he would go into the woods and sleep under the sky just so that he could get some rest.

    When Tom awakens, he demands that they let Jim go free. And as his society was forbidden us by our parents the prohibition trebled and quadrupled its value, and therefore we sought and got more of his society than any other boy's. Amid the chaos, Huck runs back to Jim, and together they start downriver again. Pap's only method of parenting is physical abuse.

    Together, he and Huck contrive a plan to help Jim escape from his "prison," an outdoor shed. Huck and Tom give Jim forty dollars for being such a good prisoner and letting them free him, while in fact he had been free for quite some time. The Duke and King also escape and catch up to rejoin the raft. One of them was tied up and the other two were talking about killing him because he blackmailed them. The woman then tells Huck that she believes Jim is hiding out on Jackson's Island. The robbers decided to leave the tied one on the wreckage so that he would sink eventually but Huck remembered to untie the boat and prevent a murder.
