Description: 

A bayou is a swamp-like body of water, sluggish or stagnant, usually adjacent to a river. It can be shallow enough to wade or, like this bayou near the story's hunting camp, deep enough to swim a horse, and it can be big enough to contain, as this one does, "a little canebrake island" in its middle where a deer can make its bed (299).
