Description: 

Sitting at a crossroads four miles from the Edmunds place is the country store owned by "Squire Adam Fraser" (222). According to the narrative, it is a local gathering point: on Saturday afternoons "every tenant and renter and freeholder white or black in the neighborhood would at least pass and usually stop, quite often to buy something" (18). In the novel it is also the place where Lucas has several confrontations with the local white men.
