Description: 

Near Doom's family's plantation is a landing point on the Tallahatchie River, a real river at the northern edge of the real Lafayette County. Faulkner similarly locates the river at the northern boundary of Yoknapatawpha on the maps of the county that are the basis for our representation of it. In his stories about the Chickasaw Indians, this river serves to connect Yoknapatawpha with the Mississippi River and the larger world.
