Biography: 

Faulkner creates a prehistoric context for the story by referring to "the first ancestor of Sam Fathers' Chickasaw predecessors," the first human being who saw the Big Woods (285). That the man hunts with a "club or stone ax or bone arrow" seems to locate that moment hundreds if not thousands of years in the past.
