Most people consider attaining wealth and security as a large part of the American dream. Huck does not feel the same way, as is evidenced below.

"I don't want it at all-nor the six thousand, nuther. I want you to take it; I want to give it to you-the six thousand and all...Don't you ask me no questions about it, please. You'll take it-won't you?...Please take it...and don't ask me nothing-then I won't have to tell no lies."
