"DO YOU SEE YONDER WICKET-GATE?"
WHEN the day is over, and the dark night comes, children often wander into a strange land,—the Land of Dreams.
Sometimes what they see and hear there is more strange than anything they see or hear in the wake-a-day
world, and that is why, when morning comes, they long to tell their dreams to all who will listen.
More than two hundred years ago, a tinker, called John Bunyan, was imprisoned in Bedford Jail. But one
night the tinker left his prison and wandered into the Land of Dreams, and there he saw wonderful sights
and heard wonderful words.
As there was no one to listen to his dream, John Bunyan wrote it down and had it made into a book, and
the book he called The Pilgrimís Progress. It is about the journey and adventures of a pilgrim
and his companions.
Into this little book I have copied the adventures that will interest boys and girls, and that will make
them want to read the whole of Bunyanís dream when they grow older.
