Description: 

The narrator refers to "a regular nest" of Snopeses who live and work as tenant farmers -- that is, sharecroppers -- "about five miles down the bottom," which seems to mean five miles from Varner's store, closer to the river (165). The narrator also says the Snopeses "never stayed on any place over a year," but this may be the "nest" from which the many cousins and other kinfolks that Flem Snopes finds places for keep coming throughout the Snopes' trilogy.
