Description: 

Jason Compson travels to Yoknapatawpha from Kentucky along the "Natchez Trace" (328), a 440-mile trail originally created by the Indians between the sites of Nashville, Tennessee, and Natchez, Mississippi. It linked three rivers - the Cumberland, the Tennessee and the Mississippi - and passed through northeast Mississippi. In 18th and early 19th centures, it served as a major overland route for traders and settlers.
