Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapter 36 Summary
- Apparently, digging thirty-foot tunnels is tough work, especially when you don't want to use a shovel. He concedes to practicality, as long as they can pretend they dug him out with a knife and not a pickaxe.
- Huck takes this as a sign that Tom is just full of principles.
- The boys include Jim in plotting their various machinations, many of which include hiding things like brass candlesticks in his food.
- When Nat (the superstitious slave) starts getting suspicious, the boys blame all the mysterious happenings on witches.
- Not to worry. They'll bake a witch's pie to placate the spirits.
