Biography: 

In her conversation with Gavin Stevens, Pruitt's unnamed mother recalls how poor she and her husband were when they married: "we didn't even own a roof over our heads. We moved into a rented house, on rented land" (96-97). This is all readers hear about Mr. Pruitt, but it suggests that at the time the story takes place the family owns the land they farm.
