Description: 

The place where Herman Basket and Crawford "overtake" and kill the three white men and talk with the ten unnamed slaves before returning to the wrecked steamboat is not described in any detail; it is far enough from the sand bar to hide the murder and close enough to the river to allow the Indians to hide the bodies.
