Huck wakes up on Jackson's Island to hear a ferryboat firing a cannon. He knows that this will bring  a drowned body to the surface and realizes that they must be searching for him. Huck also  remembers that another way to find a body is with a loaf of bread filled with quicksilver. He scouts  the shoreline and finds a large loaf, then wonders if prayer really works. Someone, after all, had  prayed that the bread find his body, and that prayer had worked. Confident that he is now safe, Huck explores the island until he stumbles upon fresh campfire ashes.  Huck climbs a tree for safety but curiosity sends him back to the site, and he discovers Miss  Watson's slave, Jim. After convincing Jim that he is not a ghost, Huck learns that Jim has run away  because Miss Watson was going to sell him down the river to New Orleans.

    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.
