From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
After sneaking a note from Harney Shepherdson to Sophia Grangerford, Huck witnesses Buck's death and gets a big wakeup call.
He falls in with the duke and king, two conmen. After a while, he gets a little fed up with all this lying and conning, particularly when a pretty girl and her an enormous inheritance are thrown into the mix.
Eventually, he and Jim try to escape from the duke and king.
They fail. Jim is captured, and Huck ends up pretending to be their nephew, Tom Sawyer.
Huck intercepts Tom Sawyer before he gets to the farm, and they scheme elaborate ways to free Jim.
These plans fail.
Eventually, Huck finds out that Jim and free and his father is dead.
With these checked off his list, he plans to head out west for more adventures.
