The conflict in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is the Tom and Huck's struggle with Injun Joe over the treasure. The climax, which can be considered the most interesting or most exciting part of the story, is when Tom has a close encounter with Injun Joe when he is lost in the cave with Becky. During this part of the story, Tom and Becky are lost in the cave, their supplies have run out, and it seems as though they might die there, with no way out, no light, and no food. Then, to even further the excitement, they hear Injun Joe, who wants to kill them, in the caves and they are almost caught. There seems to be no way to resolve the problem, when luckily, Tom discovers a way out.
