Description: 

This icon represents the various "remote back-country dog-trot cabins" that Ratliff visits on his salesman's trips around Yoknapatawpha (86). We have located it in the area where the Bundrens live in As I Lay Dying, but the story does not give any clues to specific locations - except to say that these cabins are far from town, and that the roads by which Ratliff reaches them are unpaved. A "dog-trot" cabin consists of two rooms, separated by a roofed but otherwise open breezeway; this form of housing was widespread across the impoverished rural South.
