Description: 

The five-day race over the 130 miles between the Chickasaw Plantation and the Cave follows a route that is well-known to Ikkemotubbe but left pretty vague for the story's readers. The land seems uninhabited, and to be broken up into woods and "open" country that the narrator labels as "prairies" (375). It is well-watered by "creeks," "springs" and "streams" (375).
