Description: 

Mink Snopes lives with his family in a "paintless repairless tenant cabin" (10) somewhere in the hills north of Frenchman's Bend. The area is described as "a section of small worn-out farms tilted and precarious among the eroded folds like scraps of paper" (458). The land Mink farms is owned by Will Varner. The property is not described in much detail, but the pasture around the cabin is described as "meagre," further accentuating Mink's poverty as a sharecropper (10). When Mink finally returns here after all his years in prison, all that remains of the cabin is "part of the roof," parts of the walls, and "a hole in the ground" - what was once the cellar - which is where Mink takes refuge after killing Flem (459).
