Description: 

There is no indication in Flags in the Dust about where the cotton farm on which V. K. Suratt grew up is located, but throughout the Yoknapatawpha fiction he is identified with the Frenchman's Bend area of the county, and cotton would be typically planted in the flatter, richer "bottom" land. The Suratt family worked the land as tenant farmers; as Suratt says, "ever' time we made a furrow, we was scratchin' dirt fer somebody else" (137).
