Description: 

In his account of the changes that progress brings to Yoknapatawpha, the narrator mentions that most tenant farms have disappeared along with the mules as workers on tractors cultivate larger tracts of land. This icon represents the few "forty- and fifty- and sixty-acre hill farms inaccessible from unmarked dirt roads" that still exist in the poorest parts of the county (193).
