Description: 

"Nine hours" (289) from de Spain's camp, deep within the interior of the Big Bottom, the landmark tree and the glade are close to each other. Indeed, right before the boy sees the bear in the glade, he spies sunlight glinting off the watch that he has hung on the tree. The "landmark tree" refers, moreover, not to a specific single tree, but any tree used for navigation. In later versions of this story in Go Down, Moses and Big Woods, Faulkner pluralizes the term, calling such markers "landmark trees."
