Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Jim

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Jim Fiction Nineteenth Century Life Visual Arts

Huck Finn and his pal, Tom Sawyer, tiptoe around the Widow Douglas’ house after Huck sneaks out a window late at night.

The boys are trying to be really quiet, but as they near the kitchen, Huck falls over a root which he didn’t see in the darkness. Jim, an African-American who works for Miss Watson, hears the noise and decides to investigate.
