Jackson's Island is an island in the Mississippi River that plays a role in both The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Tom Sawyer Edit

In the first book to feature Tom Sawyer, Tom, Joe Harper, Huckleberry Finn steal off to Jackson's Island to play as pirates; they are mistaken for drowned until they make a triumphant return.

Huckleberry Finn Edit

In this book, Huckleberry Finn fakes his own death (more intentionally this time), to escape from his abusive and alcoholic father. He makes land on Jackson's Island, where he finds Jim who has similarly run away, if for a different reason. The two make their way down the river for more than a thousand miles.
