Description: 

This site near and beyond the Mississippi-Alabama border represents the journey "along that big broad empty road between the burned houses and gins and fences" (83). Bayard tells us that "Before it had been like passing through a country where nobody had ever lived; now it was like passing through one where everybody had died at the same moment" (84). Nights three, four and five, the group is constantly wakened by passing groups of former slaves; on the morning of the sixth day, Rosa discovers a black woman and her infant child who were left behind by one of these groups.
