Description: 

When Mink travels to the second site where Brother Goodyhay is trying to build a church, he leaves the "lush Delta" behind and is driven into a "region of desolation," defined by its "eroded barren clay hills" (303), and ends up at "the uttermost of desolation . . . a dump, a jumbled plain of rusted automobile bodies and boilers and gin machinery and brick and concrete rubble" (304). Here Goodyhay again puts down "the stakes" and marks out the "rectangular" walls of his chapel with "string tautened rigid between them" (304).
