Description: 

Lucas cons the salesman by planting silver dollars in the remains of an orchard on site of an abandoned residence "almost two hours" by car from the McCaslin-Edmonds place (89). The road to it is "a gullied overgrown path winding through hills," and the site contains "a clump of ragged cedars, the ruins of old cementless chimneys, a depression which was once a well or a cistern, the old wornout brier- and sedge-choked fields spreading away and a few snaggled trees of what had been an orchard" (89).
