Description: 

The woods and fields near the McCaslin-Edmonds plantation appear in both Rider's and Ike's stories. They are where Rider runs all of Sunday night and Monday morning until he goes to the sawmill. His dog overtakes “him within the first half mile. There was a moon then, their two shadows flitting broken and intermittent among the trees or slanted long and intact across the slope of pasture or old abandoned fields upon the hills” (135-36). And in "Old People," Sam Fathers teaches Isaac McCaslin to hunt by shooting rabbits in these woods, which are close to a creek where their dogs hunt raccoons, and turkeys roost in the trees.
