Chapter 11 Summary

Huck Finn's portrayal of a young girl seems to be making a good impression after a woman lets him into a small shanty and allows him to spin his fantasy about his mother's bad luck and how he has come to the town to visit his Uncle Abner. The woman then relates to him the story of his murder and how Jim is one of the main suspects. She thinks that she saw smoke coming up from Jackson's Island. Meanwhile, as they talk, Huck obliges the woman by throwing a bar of lead at a rat as they're talking. His manner of throwing the lead, as well as method of threading a needle, gives him away as a boy. The woman buys his next story as having run away from bondage to a mean old farmer. But now Huck knows that the authorities are after them.
