The next evening, Tom and Huck try to use the case-knives to dig a tunnel under the cabin, but after  a few hours, they realize they need better tools. Tom decides they will use pick-axes and shovels and  pretend that they are case-knives. The next night, Tom and Huck easily dig into Jim's cabin and  wake him. Jim listens to Tom's plans and agrees to go along with them even though he thinks they  do not make sense. Tom assures Jim that they will change the plans immediately if something goes  wrong.

    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.
