"...last I pulled out some of my hair, blooded the ax good, and stuck it on the back side, and slung the ax in the corner." (7.21)
Pap arrives and harasses Huck about "putting on frills" and takes Huck's money to go get drunk. For a while, Pap also fights for custody of Huck and his fortune. After a few months of this, and a failed attempt to rectify his ways, Pap kidnaps Huck and takes him to a small cabin upriver. After alternate periods of abuse and relaxation, Huck gets fed up with Pap. Huck finds a canoe on the river, packs up, fakes his own death, and leaves for Jackson's Island.
"Nevermind, honey, nevermind. Don't get all worked up. The bad luck is coming, mind you. It's coming."
On Jackson's Island, Huck dodges a search boat looking for his body, then stumbles upon Miss Watson's slave, Jim. Jim tells Huck he's run away, but makes him swear not to tell. They camp out together, but Jim gets a snakebite as a result of a trick Huck plays on him--it all causes bad luck. After a big rainstorm, they salvage items from a floating house, where they also encounter a dead man. After that, Huck dresses like a girl and goes into a strange woman's house where he gets information on his "murder case" and the reward out for Jim. She tells him that people are on to their hideout at Jackson's Island, so Huck goes back and he and Jim move on downriver.
"It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a (slave); but I done it, and I warn't ever sorry for it afterwards, neither. I didn't do him no more mean tricks, and I wouldn't done that one if I'd a knowed it would make him feel that way."
After five nights floating down the Mississippi, Huck and Jim come across a wrecked ship and Huck insists they explore it. Once onboard, they hear two men discussing the fate of a third they have tied up. The raft has floated away, but Jim steals the men's skiff and supplies and he and Huck use that until they find the raft. Huck tells a chance ferryboat watchman that there are people on the wreck that need saving. The loot from the men's skiff is plenty. On a foggy night, Huck and Jim lose each other,
"We said there warn’t no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don’t. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft."
Jim is excited about his freedom, but Huck's conscience is heavy and he decides to turn Jim in. On his way to do so, he runs into townspeople and covers for Jim. Soon, they realize they've missed the turn into the Ohio when they were in the fog, and their plans to go back up are foiled when the raft is wrecked. Onshore, Huck and Jim are separated and Huck finds his way to the Grangerfords'. They take him in and Huck befriends their boy Buck. He learns that the family is in a feud with the Sheperdsons, but no one remembers why. While delivering a message for a Grangerford, Huck finds Jim. The next day, a Grangerford and Sheperdson elope and a fight breaks out between the families; many are killed. Jim and Huck go back to the raft and decide it's the best place.
"“Well,” says he, “dat’s all right, den. I doan’ mine one er two kings, but dat’s enough. Dis one’s powerful drunk, en de duke ain’ much better.”
While searching for berries, Huck comes upon two men on the lam and helps them escape. On the raft, they discover they're both con men and form a partnership. They tell Huck and Jim that they're royalty; Huck knows they're lying but decides not to say anything. They stop at a tiny town, which is basically abandoned because the people are at church. The "King" attends and tells a sob story. He collects $87 and some whiskey. The "Duke" prints a flyer that says Jim is a runaway slave from New Orleans; which will save them from suspicion on the river during the day. Neither Jim or Huck like the Duke or Dauphin very much.
"After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the Bulrushers and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by and by she let it out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn't care no more about him, because I don't take no stock in dead people."
The King and Duke rehearse Shakespeare on the raft and then go ashore in Arkansas to put on a show. While wandering around town, Huck witnesses a supposedly harmless drunk get killed by the man he was shouting about. The townspeople mob the killer's house with the intent to lynch him, but he stands up on the roof and calls them cowards. The crowd disperses. After the Shakespeare show is unsuccessful, the King and Duke advertise a show for men only, but don't have anything to perform. The men that showed up get angry and plan to tar and feather the Duke and King, but they sneak away with Huck and Jim.
Another town
"Well, if ever I struck anything like it, I’m a (slave.) It was enough to make a body ashamed of the human race."
Along the river, Huck and the King pick up a boy in their canoe and learn all about a local rich man, Peter Wilks, who died and left his fortune to his brothers. The King and Duke go into town and pose as the mourning "brothers." They attend the funeral and acquire the willed money. Huck talks to one of the daughters and decides to restore the money to its rightful owners. Huck takes the money but is almost caught and forced to hide it in Peter Wilks' coffin --he has no chance to retrieve it. The King announces the estate will be sold, but also tries to break up a slave family, which the daughters are against. Huck reveals the Duke and King to a daughter but she keeps quiet. Huck tells her where to find the gold. The real brothers show up and prove their claims. Huck and Jim escape, but so do the Duke and King, so they aren't free of each other yet.
The raft and Phelps farm.
"Ok, I'll go to hell."
Huck and Jim really don't like the Duke or King. Being broke, the King sells Jim for $40. Huck is furious. He ponders his choices and ends up writing a letter to Miss Watson, which relieves him from his sin of helping a slave escape. After a moment though, he realizes his friendship with Jim is too valuable to forget and rips up the letter. He starts plotting to steal Jim back out of slavery. He goes to the Phelps' farm, where he is greeted as Tom Sawyer. Back in town Huck finds the real Tom and Tom says he'll help free Jim. The Duke and King are in town, and Huck tells the people that they're con men, but before he can warn the King or Duke, they've been tarred and feathered.
"I knowed he was white inside, and I reckoned he'd say what he did say - so it was all right, now, and I told Tom I was agoing for a doctor."
Huck and Tom disagree about how they should save Jim. They dig into Jim's cabin and take a few weeks to do ridiculous things like Tom has read in books. They capture animals to put in Jim's "dungeon" but many are set free in the house by the Phelps boys. When it's time for Jim's escape, Tom tips off the Phelps, which leads to an escape amidst gunfire; when they get back to the raft, Tom has been shot in the calf. Huck gets a doctor for him, but stays behind. They all end up back at the Phelps' house and the doctor vouches for Jim. When Tom wakes up he tells Sally that he and Huck are responsible, then demands Jim be set free by order of Miss Watson's will. They reveal their true identities and Huck goes off on his own, refusing to be civilized by Sally.
