Description: 

This tent "in the river jungle beyond Frenchman's Bend" is the squalid home of one of the two remaining descendants of Louis Grenier, perhaps the first white settler of Yoknapatawpha and the "Frenchman" from whom the "Bend" as a district gets its name (7). The land on which Lonnie Grinnup squats had "once been a part of the Grenier plantation" (7). (In Intruder in the Dust, Lonnie lives in a ramshackle shed on more or less the same site.)
