Description: 

Where the "country road" that leads to Memphis crosses the "swampy creek" with its infernal name (80). The creek itself is bridged, but to reach it a car has to get across a muddy morass, cultivated "like a patch" of cotton by the man who lives beside it, and charges cars a fee to pull them out of the mud (84).
