As Chick and Aleck Sander travel to the Edmonds place in the morning of "the first winter cold-snap" in Intruder in the Dust (4), they pass small farms where everyone seems to be involved in the same two activities. The women, wearing "sunbonnets" or "men's old felt hats," are boiling water in big kettles, while the men, "with crokersack aprons tied with wire over their overalls," prepare to slaughter hogs (4). (A croker sack is a burlap bag.)
