However, on the other hand, he protects Jim from the “runaway capturers,” listens to his advice, and apologizes when he feels bad about hurting Jim’s feelings. When Huck decides not to turn in Jim, he instead tricks the “runaway capturers” into giving him money to help his Pap with smallpox. These men are “right down sorry” (96) for Huck and give him 40 dollars to help his “sick dad.” This whole encounter, however, is for Jim’s benefit because Huck cares more about Jim’s safety than obeying moral

This shows that Richter does not like the Whites as much as the Indians. Finally, Richter’s childhood could have influenced him in his bias. As a child, Richter wanted to be free. This probably influenced his bias towards the Indian culture because they were more free than the white people (Richter,96).
Once upon a time there lived a leprechaun, you know, the kind that protect a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. This leprechaun was very short, small, and was only about thirteen years old. He had bright red hair and always wore a green hat with a gold buckle on it to match his green outfit. He was a very friendly, talkative leprechaun who was named Big Red. Big Red had been protecting his own pot of gold since he turned ten, which was about three years ago.
The stones are referred to a lot, but subtly connected with children that the reader simply brushes it off, as a game to kill the time. However, the behavior that stands out is the men, “They stood together, away from the piles of stones in the corner, and their jokes were quiet and they smiled rather than laughed” (p.26 l. 19-21).
