Description: 

Turning trees into lumber is one of the staples of the Yoknapatawpha economy, so there are a number of saw mills in the various texts. This struggling sawmill ("a saw mill where even the owner must be a financial genius to avoid bankruptcy," 33), must be in the Frenchman's Bend vicinity because it is owned by Will Varner. In other texts the Bend sawmill is owned by the Quick family, so we are locating Varner's sawmill on the same spot.
