Description: 

The small "weathered" house and barn of the farmer (or tenant farmer) named Hub is reached by driving "out of town on the valley road," up a faint, rutted wagon road . . . straight into the [setting] sun" (132). It's a poverty-stricken setting; the barn doors, for example, "sag drunkenly from broken hinges" (133). The barn itself seems almost completely empty, except for "the cow" and the jug of moonshine Hub keeps in the loft. He, young Bayard and Suratt drink from it at a spring under "a huge beech and a clump of saplings [that stand] like mottled ghosts" (134).
