The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

1. Huck begins to learn discipline. "I slipped into cornfields and borrowed a watermelon, or a pumpkin, or some new corn, or things of that kind. Pap always said it warn't no harm to borrow things if you was meaning to pay them back sometime; but the widow said it warn't anything but a soft name for stealing, and no decent body would do it. Jim said he reckoned the widow was partly right and Pap was partly right, so the best way would be for us to pick out two or three things from the list and say we weouldn't borrow them anymore." (pg. 58-59)Huck and Jim are debating wether to continue to steal the food or make a few sacrifices. Huck recalls advice from his Pap and the widow. After a long period of discussion between Jim and Huck they decide to quit "borrowing" so much of the food. Huck realizes right from wrong in this situation. This shows he is beginning to become a kinder, caring person. Huck is not only thinking of himself at the moment, which teaches him discipline.

5. Phelp FarmThis farm transforms Huck into a man. He makes the desicion to try to set Jim free. "because it don't matter how foolish it sound, its the right thing to do."
