at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - MOST of the adventures recorded in
this book really occurred; one or two were experiences of my own,
the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is
drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individual - he
is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew,
and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture. The
odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children
and slaves in the West at the period of this story - that is to
say, thirty or forty years ago. Although my book is intended mainly
for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be
shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has
been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were
themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what
queer enterprises they sometimes engaged in.
