Haystack in "Vendee"|The Unvanquished (Location Key)


This haystack beside the "dim road along the river bottom" is the place where Ringo and Bayard sleep on the last night on their chase of Grumby and his men in "Vendee" (110, 178). The agricultural economy of Yoknapatawpha would have needed a lot of hay to feed the mules who helped plant and grow the cotton and corn, but I cannot recall another haystack or any other reference to growing and making hay in the fictions.
