Description: 

Ab Snopes' home is located "back in the hills," in particular near a "long red hill" (159); in Yoknapatawpha 'the hills' usually means the countryside east of town, but there's no way to say where this particular 'red' hill is. After turning from the road, Bayard, Ringo and Uncle Buck come to a creek bottom where there is a faint path that leads to this mule pen (160). This pen "was just like the one Ringo and Yance and I had built at home, only smaller and better hidden; I reckon [Ab] had got the idea from ours" (160).
