Description: 

The story distinguishes between the "river," big enough to be navigable in the past by a steamboat, and a smaller "creek" that flows through Doom's plantation. The creek "bottom" is probably a wide, swampy, overgrown area, and it is big enough to provide hiding places "in hollow logs" for "the People" as a group (350). It also provides the "saplings" from which to build a fence around a slave cabin (359).
