Description: 

Some distance beyond the overturned log with the bear's "crooked print" stands a "gum tree" beside which flows a "little bayou . . . whose black still water crept without movement out of a cane-brake and crossed a small clearing and into cane again" (285). The bayou serves as a demarcation point between the Big Bottom hunting grounds and the "new and alien country" (289) of wilderness that lies beyond these grounds.
