Biography: 

This story only mentions "Uncle Buck McCaslin," when Bayard recalls the way the old man had "acted" in "Retreat," the previous story in the series. In the collective Yoknapatawpha fictions, the McCaslins are planters who were among the first white settlers of Yoknapatawtpha, and their story is at the center of the later novel Go Down, Moses. Buck's first appearances in print, however, give no sense of that.
