Superstition plays an important role in this book.  Both Jim and Huck are very superstitious.  It was common in those days, and in the South.  People are still superstitious today.  Every gone out of your way to avoid walking under a ladder?

Nat fears that witches are after him and he just wants them to leave him alone.  Huck and Tom suggest he bake them a witch pie to get them off his back.  Nat says he never heard of anything like that before, but that is just what he will do if it will get them to leave him alone.  This is in the last few pages of Ch 36.
