Description: 

"A low, broken-backed log house" (279), a mile from the river bottom, where Minnie Sue Turpin lives. Byron stops here during his flight from Yoknapatawpha, either to ask her to leave with him or to try to get her to have sex with him. In any case, her only response is to tell him to "come back tomorrer" (281). Byron gets there by turning off the main road some distance past Varner's store, then driving half an hour "along a rutted wagon road, between swampy jungle, at a snail's pace" (278).
