The most prominent force of nature in Huckleberry Finn is the Mississippi River. The river is both Huck and Jim's escape route and their biggest enemy. Always unpredictable, the river is a force throughout the novel.

Another good example of Twain's use of nature can be in the storm he describes in Chapter 9. Because of the storm's intensity, Jim and Huck are allowed to gather driftwood and construct a raft. This use of nature furthers the action in the plot.
