On this journey, the hero needs helpers and guides usually presents the hero that will aid and keep him or her on track during their quest. As well, friends and or helpers that will assist the person to help stay on his or her path towards overall greatness and transformation (Bray January 10). Huck’s helper is not a friend or a human, nor of the supernatural. It is the Mississippi River, which provides his an escape route along with a canoe to go to Jackson’s Island. Here, Huck will be safe and away from Pap and his menacing thoughts (Campbell 57-63).After receiving guide from a helper or guide, the hero must cross the threshold, better known as the point of no return, going into the wild or acceptance of the heroic role. This stage is usually marked by a definitive exit into a new and unchartered territory. The hero leaves his ordinary world for the first time and crosses the threshold into adventure. Tests, allies, and enemies will all be present in this new world, where the hero learns the rules of his new world (Bray January 10). After being locked up in a room in a remote cabin, Huck uses a saw he finds and cuts a hole. Allowing Huck to escape from terror and continue on his journey. He finds a canoe and uses it, allowing him to travel to Jackson’s Island, where Pap won’t be able to find him. Permitting Huck to sustain his journey through the monomythic structure. When arriving at Jackson’s Island, Huck makes a decision that will greatly affect the rest of his journey and will impact the way society views him (Campbell 64-73).One of the more important stages of the monomyth is the belly of the whale when the hero enters the zone of danger where he or she cannot go back, and accepts the journey that lies ahead. The transformation of the hero affects his or her own fate. This is when the hero is forced to take on the characteristics he or she is destined to show at the end of the heroic journey, accepting the first of many challenges (Bray January 10). Huck and Jim approach the Ohio River on a foggy night, Huck, in the canoe, gets separated from Jim and the raft. He tries to paddle back to the raft, but the fog is so thick that he loses all sense of direction. After a lonely time adrift, Huck reunited with Jim, who is asleep on the raft. Huck realizes at this moment that Jim is like a father to him, someone who protects him. Relazining the impact of Jim on his life and the journey that they are taking together (Campbell 74-80).
