Description: 

"The fork" of the road that Lucius mentions is where the road toward the Edmonds' plantation seventeen miles to the northeast leads away from the road north, which is why he says it will take him "in the wrong direction" from Memphis (59). Interestingly, each of those miles is marked by a "milepost" (59). And according to Boon, whose testimony is not necessarily reliable, although the county roads are unpaved, they "are sure fine now, everywhere" (60).
