Transcript of Huck Finn's Physical and Emotional Journey

Welcome! This is an infographic detailing Huckleberry Finn's physical as well as emotional journey down the Mississippi River with his friend, Jim. Let's get started! Here, we have a map of the Mississippi River. Let's take a look at Huck's travels. Huck's journey begins here, in the town of St. Petersburg. He starts off a thik-skulled little boy, mostly uninterested in the camaraderie found in pretending to do things with friends and more so in the actual excitement and danger of adventure. Here, Huck and Jim manage to get food by stealing from St. Louis. Huck has little moral compass at this point and Jim likely feels that it is simply neccessary. This is the city of Cairo. Huck and Jim had meant to stop here, but accidentally miss the city and are forced to keep on going downstream. Here, Huck and Jim lose contact and Huck is momentarily sheltered at the Grangerford's house. The reader can really begin to see here that Huck's morals are changing. He questions Buck as towhy it is that they and the Shepardsons must kill each other based on some petty argument. No one even seems to remember. He's obviously uncomfortable with the needless fighting and killing. Nearby Arkansas, Huck and Jim encounter the Duke and the King, two fugitives masquerading as displaced royalty. They put on a series of scam shows in several small towns to swindle the people out of their money. Huck grows increasingly uncomfortable with the King and Duke's antics, and decides he doesn't like them very much after all. In their final confrontation (of sorts) Huck decides to help the family the Duke and the King have targeted. While out of a misplaced sense of chivalry, he still acts out of kindness. Here, at Pikesville, the King and the Duke sell Jim for about $40. In his most daring and mature move in the book, Huck decides that he'll go to Hell if it means rescuing his friend. He makes a leap in his previous maturity levels. He also meets Tom Sawyer, who crafts an overly elaborate plan to try and rescue Jim. After all is said and done, Tom revelas to Huck that Jim as been free for about two months, as Widow Douglas had died and left Jim free in her will. END
