With the temperature rising and the landscape scattered with Spanish moss, Huck realizes that they  are a long way from home. The new schemes of the duke and the king barely bring in enough money  for liquor, so the two men begin to plot and whisper about their next scam. Huck and Jim are  concerned about the clandestine behavior of the con men, and when Huck finally sees a chance to  escape, he discovers that the duke and the king have made a fake handbill and turned in Jim for a  $40 reward.

    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.
