Description: 

The Bundren farm sits below the bluff that the house is built on top of. It features a cotton field with a path that “runs straight as a plumb-line” through the cotton rows toward the cottonhouse "of rough logs, from between which the chinking has fallen. Square, with a broken roof set at a single pitch, it leans in empty and shimmering dilapidation in the sunlight, a single broad window in two opposite walls giving onto the approach of the path" (4). On one side of the field are woods, and on the other, next to the path that leads up to the house, a road. The farm also features a barn, wagon shed, pasture, and spring, all located at the bottom of the bluff.
