Description: 

Near Doom's family's plantation is a landing point on a river. Although the story does not name the river, on his maps of Yoknapatawpha Faulkner identifies the river which runs along the northern edge of the county as the Tallahatchie or Little Tallahatchie, a real river at the northern edge of the real Lafayette County. In his stories about the Chickasaw Indians, this river serves to connect Yoknapatawpha with the Mississippi River and the larger world.
