As Huck is finishing, a man appears nearby in a skiff. Huck recognizes that it is Pap returning early and that he is sober. Immediately, Huck jumps into the canoe and pushes off. He floats downstream until he reaches Jackson's Island, a deserted stretch of land in the middle of the river. Huck ties up the canoe and satisfied with his work, settles down to get some sleep. The trip to Jackson's island brings a sense of respite and refuge to Huck. There are images of calmness and serenity as compared with the harsh world of deceit and violence from Pap.
