Huckleberry saw a cross in the cave and thought that it was Injun Joe’s ghost. He was scared because of this, but then Tom said that there are no ghosts in the neighborhood of crosses. They kept on searching for the treasure and finally they found it. They went back to the village with the money. There, they told the people that they had found a treasure but nobody believed them so tom showed the treasure.
He decides to tell the people about it and warn her. Later on, Tom and Becky are discovered to be missing in the caves; so all the men begin looking for them. Tom and Becky are too weak to call out to them though. Tom ends up seeing Injun Joe in a nearby passage in the cave. He later discovers a way out of the cave and he and Becky return home.
They find out that they were five miles from the entrance. Judge Thacker shuts up the cave, and Tom becomes terrified and tells him that Injun Joe was still in there. They go to open the cave, only to find Injun Joe lying there dead at the entrance. They hold a funeral for him, and Tom is relieved from a great burden. The widow Douglas takes Huck in.
When Huck and Tom were stuck inside the haunted house with Injun Joe though, they were not concerned with pretend adventures, and stuck together and kept quiet. If either Huck or Tom had been alone, they might have cried or made some noise from being frightened that would have given them away, and Injun Joe would have killed them for pointing him out to the town as Dr. Robinson?s murderer. Being together, the boys got through the encounter and were able to eventually find the treasure, while saving more murders from happening, Muff Potter?s as well as their own.
At the time Muff Potter was drunk and asleep so Injun Joe blamed the murder him (Muff Potter). They knew if crazy Injun Joe found out they knew, he would for sure kill them. Tom wrote on a wooden board "Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer swear to keep mum about this and they wish they may drop down dead in their tracks if they ever tell and rot", then in their own blood they signed their initials TS and HF. A few days after that incident Tom, Huck and Joe decided to go and become pirates because no one cared for their company anymore. They stole some food and supplies and then they stole a raft and paddled to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River.
When Milkman goes to Pennsylvania to look for the gold, he was actually in search of his family’s past. One of the themes in the story is how the history of African Americans histories are not clear and unrecorded. The fact that the history of Milkman’s family history is so unclear and unrecorded he goes through a long journey to find it. Along the way he goes through many places and meets many people that help him find his family history. Milkman thought the bag that Pilate had was filled with the dead white mans gold, but when he reaches Pennsylvania he realizes that he is wrong.
The first clue they used led them to a room in a tavern where Injun Joe laid passed out and drunk. Realizing the treasure isn’t located in a place but an area, they continue the search. Tom and Becky get lost in a cave while on a trip and eventually get rescued. Tom and Huck are about to give up when they realize the treasure is in the cave and retrieve it. The adventure and search of the treasure was an essential scene that should have been in the movie because, it shows how the treasure was found and its ties with Injun Joe.
She tells Rooster,‘“I want him to know he is being punished for killing my father”’(65) because she fears that Tom Chaney is only going to be punished for killing a senator in a different state. She takes matters into her own hands because the state is not doing anything about it. Another example of Mattie being the quest hero is that she has a near death experience. In almost all quest stories the quest hero has a near death experience or a type of banishment. For instance, Mattie falls into a deep pit full of snakes.
