Description: 

All we can say for certain about the location of Solon Quick's farm is that it is twenty-two miles by road from Jefferson. Almost certainly it is further from the church than the farms of the story's other characters, since Quick drives there in the "school-bus truck" that he made himself (17). All we can say for sure about the farm itself is that Quick himself owns it. In other stories the farmers in the Frenchman's Bend area are often described as share-croppers, tenants of Will Varner, but in this story it seems most of the farmers, though poor, do own their land. Quick, however, clearly supplements the income from his farm by driving the "school-bus."
