Description: 

This icon represents the group of cabins that form the slave quarters on the McCaslin plantation. After the death of Ike McCaslin's great-grandfather, Uncle Buck and Uncle Buddy moved all the slaves into the big house. Later, when Ike is a boy, there are an unspecified number of cabins for black tenant farmers on the property. Sam Fathers has lived in one of them for years "among the negroes" (161), though "he was still the son of that Chickasaw chief and the negroes knew it" (161). Sam Fathers has never furnished the cabin extensively.
