The family portrayed in the book, the Coates, consists of father Jim, mother Katie, eldest son Travis, and his younger brother Arliss. They are extremely poor, having only confederate money after the war, and when the father and all the other men in nearby homes must leave on a cattle drive, Travis is left as the man of the house.
