It is bordered on the west by the Fort Warren Indian reservation, a piece of land that is barely farmable and basically worthless and inhabited by members of the Sioux tribe.
The roads are unpaved and the climate is difficult—residents must deal with extreme changes in temperature and never-ending wind. David guesses that the harsh and demanding climate keeps people so busy they can rarely find time to make trouble—this is why Mercer county is so peaceful.
We can glean right away that the inequality built into the fabric of this small-town society—the Sioux are relegated to some of the worst land in the state. David mentions that the residents of Bentrock endure difficult weather conditions—which, while true, is ironically positioned in this section, following as it does the mention of the poverty on the reservations.
Again the picture being painted is one that will be systemically torn down by the events of the story: He wears a shirt and tie and does not wear boots or a cowboy hat. For David the absence of old-western style violence means an absence of excitement and challenge altogether. His sense of the world is shaped by entertainment and toys.
The difference between lawyer and sheriff also calls attention to the difference between law and justice. David, as an adult, wonders why his grandfather wanted to be sheriff. He concludes it is because his grandfather wanted and needed power. When Grandpa Hayden finally retired, he turned the post over to Wesley, keeping the Hayden name in office.
Wesley, it is revealed, is torn between two loyalties.
His father wants him to keep the Hayden name in office, but his wife ostensibly for his sake wishes he could move away from Grandpa Hayden, so that he no longer felt the pressure of his name.
His desire to keep one family in charge is anti-democratic and betrays a love of power and prestige over a love of law. David does not enjoy or understand living in a community—the rules and requirements intimidate him, and he prefers to be out in the countryside alone.
He flees the town and its laws and regulations as often as possible, and Gail worries this is stunting his personal and social growth. But David is happy here—he rides his horse, Nutty, and goes fishing, hiking and hunting.
He feels that out in the country is the only place where he can be his true self, free of the pressures of human society. This is yet another ironic kind of gesture—by the end of this story, the idea that the countryside could protect David from the realities of adulthood is almost laughable. The realities of the external world will find him even in his isolation.
She is a large, beautiful woman with a big personality to match, who likes to tell tall tales and jokes. Note also how he loves Marie unreservedly, without any sense of prejudice, and focuses on her personality.
Ronnie is perhaps the most accomplished athlete to ever graduate from Bentrock high school and was a star in every sport he tried. David is blissfully unaware, as a child, of the injustices that Native Americans like Ronnie face.
One day David passes the door and hears horrible coughing. When Gail returns for her lunch break, David tells her he thinks Marie is sick. Gail is alarmed and investigates, quickly determining that Marie has a fever. Marie is only wearing a nightgown, and David is reminded of the time he accidentally saw her naked getting out of the shower.
Gail gives Marie extra blankets and tells her to stay in bed until evening, when they can ask Dr. His mother treats Marie like a child, ignoring her wishes and insisting on care. Active Themes David checks in on Marie frequently.
She sleeps fitfully and mumbles deliriously. Once she calls David in and makes him promise to keep the doctor away from her.
Marie coughs violently and David rubs her back and feels that she is shaking all over. When he promises to keep Frank away, she seems to relax. David, when he is grown, puts on a pair of moccasins every day after work, as a small act of defiance.Rev.
