Chapter 17-19

One thing I found interesting was that in chapter 18, Huck started to revere Colonel Grangerford. This stood out to me because it is one of the first male figures in his life that is distinguished and as of now a good role model. Huck needs a male figure in his life that is not abusive and I think Colonel could be that for him. I think this is a great situation for Huck.
