After two or three peaceful days on the raft, Huck is searching for some berries in a creek when he  comes upon two desperate men. The men are obviously being chased, and Huck tells them how to  lose the dogs, and they escape. The men, one around 70 and the other around 30 years old, join  Huck and Jim on the raft. Each man quickly discovers that they both are con artists, and they decide to work together. Shortly  after their agreement, the youngest breaks into tears and claims that he is the Duke of Bridgewater  and must be treated with respect. After a thoughtful moment, the oldest uses the same tactic and  claims to be the Dauphin, the rightful heir to the French throne. Huck believes the men are simple  con men but decides not to challenge them in order to keep the peace.

    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.
