Only Granny and Bayard appear in this third story in the series that began with "Ambuscade," though Colonel John is mentioned by Granny as if the name Sartoris itself were a password. The story of a journey into Tennessee and back again begins in a world defined by loss - the Yankees have burned the family's home and confiscated the family silver, many of the slaves have emancipated themselves by following the Union Army away, the larger Southern landscape has been turned into a kind of wasteland - but thanks to Granny's indomitable spirit, she and Bayard return to "Sartoris" having won a kind of victory.
