Description: 

Although "the river" in this story is never named (297), there is a good chance that it is the Sunflower River, which flows through Mississippi about 150 miles southwest of Oxford/Jefferson and into the Yazoo River about twenty miles east of the Mississippi. Faulkner himself hunted along the Sunflower in the mid-20th century.
