Description: 

The "hill man" whom John Sartoris shoots while the railroad is being built lived with his wife and "several children" in "a dirt-floored cabin in the hills" (221). In the Yoknapatawpha fictions, "the hills" typically means the area to the east of Jefferson, where both the soil and the farmers are poor. A "dirt-floored" cabin would be a particularly poor one.
