Description: 

While all the land along the river is swampy, this is the place which the narrative refers to as "the swamp" (333). It is where "the Negro" takes refuge, and probably where he is bitten by a "cottonmouth moccasin" (338). It is small enough for the Indians to "form a circle" around it, and that is how they finally capture him (337).
