After exploring Jackson's Island, Jim and Huck find a cavern to hide in high on a steep ridge. They  hide the canoe and then haul their traps and supplies up to the cavern. Huck thinks the location is  too difficult to reach, but Jim argues that it will help protect them against people and the rain. Just as  Jim predicted in Chapter 8, a large storm comes. The river rises for 10 or 12 days, and the flooding waters give Jim and Huck the opportunity to  explore and capture useful debris. One night, they discover a two-story frame house drifting along.  Inside the house, Jim sees a dead man and instructs Huck not to look at the dead man's face  because " . . . it's too gashly." Avoiding the body, they search the house and find an "old speckled  straw hat," among the clothes, bottles, and other household items.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
