The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

 

Comprehensive Summary and Review of Chapters 7-10

 

Summary:

Huck fakes his death and flees to Jackson Island. On the island, he meets Jim, Miss Watson’s runaway slave. He tells Huck that Miss Watson had been planning to sell him to slave traders and before she had a chance to do so, he ran away.

After a few days, the boys decide that they need a better hiding place than just the open field and eventually find a large cavern in the middle of the island. This place also offers them shelter against the weather and the flooding river. One day an empty houseboat floats down the river past the island and Jim and Huck are able to retrieve some odds and ends that are of value to them. They also find a man's body inside the cabin. Jim shields Huck from looking at the corpse saying that it is too "ghastly".

Wanting to find out if anything new had occurred in town, Huck decides to go back disguised as a girl. On shore, he finds a woman who is a newcomer to the area.

 

Review:

Huck fakes his own murder and escapes to a nearby island. He meets Jim, the slave, who has also run away.

These chapters lay the groundwork for Huck's change of thinking about blacks and the issue of slavery. They also show his ability at being self sufficient and extremely inventive.
