Description: 

Mink Snopes lives with his family in a "paintless repairless tenant cabin" (10) somewhere in the hills north of Frenchman's Bend. The area is described as "a section of small worn-out farms tilted and precarious among the eroded folds like scraps of paper" (458). The land Mink farms is owned by Will Varner. The property is not described in much detail, but the pasture around the cabin is described as "meagre," further accentuating Mink's poverty as a sharecropper (10). Under the cabin is a dirt cellar that Mink returns to, alone, at the end of the novel.
