Transcript of Huck Finn Scrapbook

This is map traces the journey that Huck Finn takes on his journey down the Mississippi River The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Huck Finn lives and starts his journey in St. Petersburg, Missouri. Motifs: Disobedience

Huck continues to disobey his guardians even when they tell him not to do something he will do it. For example, during the first chapter Huck decides to smoke up in his room after the Widow tells him not to smoke because it is a filthy habit.
Another time Huck disobeys the Widow is when she tells him to stay in the house, however Huck has bigger plans he ends up sneaking out of the house and going off to meet Tom Sawyer and his gang of Robbers.
A defining moment at this point in the story is when Huck decides to listen to Tom Sawyer and go back to the Widow in order to join Tom Sawyers Gang. He takes Tom's advice and goes back to the widow. He eventually decides to run away though when Pap comes back. Pap is very disrespectful to Huck and is greedy for all of his money. For example, Huck is forced to go get soem money from Judge Thatcher for Pap so that Pap can get booze.
Motifs: Disobedience

This part also includes Huck not listening to his guardians. For example, Huck is running away from his chores to get a log raft that he sees floating down the river, Pap finds out and tries to beat him in a drunken rage.
The last time Huck disobeys his guardians is when he runs away from Pap. Huck decides he has had enough of Pap and steals his gun and runs away. Eventually he encounters many new companions.
Defining Moment
A defining moment at this point in the story is when Huck runs away and encounters Jim. This is a very important part of the story because it shows when Huck and Jim really start their journey which leads to be a adventure of a lifetime.
A important moment arises when Pap arrives back from wherever he went. The only reason Pap is back is because he heard about the money and he wants it for himself. Huck now has to make the decision of whether to stay with Pap and where he should trust his money. Pap which is Huck's Dad returns looking for Huck's money and ends up taking Huck with him back to his cabin. Paps cabin is still in St. Petersburg, Missouri. Motifs: Troublemaker and Curiosity

Huck Continues to cause trouble and be a troublemaker. For example, Huck encounters Jim, Miss Watsons Slave. When Jim sees him he thnks Huck is a ghost. Jim and Huck decide to run away from Pap and Miss Watson together, Huck does not know how much trouble he could get in for helping a slave escape to a free state if he gets caught before he gets there.
Huck also ends up on a steamboat that is full of criminals. He finds the criminals on the boat and has a chance to escape, however he decides to still be curious and ventures further onto the boat and after his raft comes loose and floats away Huck realizes why his curiosity has put him and Jim in a difficult predicament.

A defining moment that just occured in Hucks Journey was when Huck and Jim encountered the cabin on the river. They entered the cabin and Jim found a dead man, this man was Pap but Jim did not tell Huck this until the end of the story. This is important because it is one of the big reasons Huck ran away in the first place. Huck adventures down the Mississippi River in his attempt to escape Pap. Motifs: Curiosity and Bad Choices

Huck stays at the Grangerford home and Huck decides to leave when a feud happens between the Grangerford family and the Sheperdson family, the Sheperdsons are a rival family that has had constant conflict with the Grangerford family. Huck then makes the discovery that Jim is hiding outside the house down in a thicket and they decide reunite.
Huck has now reunited with Jim and he is going down the river, this is a continueing pattern. Huck ends up encountering two men known as the Duke and Dauphin, they end up deciding to scam the the folk in the next town by engaging in a play called Romeo and Juliet. Huck continues to get involved in trouble and still be a troublemkaer himself when this happens.
Huck and the Duke and Dauphin also decide to cause trouble in the next town by scamming a girl named Mary Jane and they find out she has a huge inheritance that her uncle is going to get, they decide to pretend to be her uncle. When the Duke and Dauphin get caught they turn over Jim for a $200 reward. This causes Huck to realize his trust in Jim and he goes after him in a desperate attempt to save Jim from the people who bought him.
A defining moment at this point during the story is when Huck decides whether he should really trust Jim and whether he is making the right choice helping him. He feels this way because of what Jim told him he was going to do when he became a free man. This makes Huck feel like he is doing exactly what the slave owners did to him and that he is just out for revenge. The Rafts is destroyed and Huck and Jim are seperated. After this Huck encounters the Grangerford family. Finally Huck and Jim encounter two men called the Duke and Dauphin and they band together. Motifs: Disobedience and Troublemaker

Huck ends up going to the Phekps Farm and runs into Uncle Silas and Aunt Sally, these are relatives of Tom Sawyer. Tom sawyer is on his way to meet his Aunt and Uncle. Even though Huck is encouraged before not to attempt to save Jim he goes anyway and causes more trouble.
Huck also ends up saving Jim in the end when he works with Tom Sawyer to dig a hole to where he is being held this causes more trouble than it should have and they save Jim in the end anyways.
A defining moment is when Huck saves Jim and when Tom Sawyer goes against his Aunt and Uncle to help his best friend and a slave that he does not know. The reason he does this is unclear.
