Huck finn

In Mark Twains? The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn the main character Huck, makes two very important decisions. The first one is how he treats Jim when he first meets him at Jackson's Island and the second is to tear up the letter to Miss Watson because he cares deeply for Jim. When Huck first runs away from Pap he goes to Jackson's Island and thinks that he is the only person there.

Many people would hate to be alone on an island with a ?nigger?2 , but Huck is happy to have someone to talk with. At first Jim thinks he sees Hucks ghost and is scared.
