I don't mind admitting i have my doubts (Haas 58).

This shows that Phin is not always confident and all knowing in what is happening around him.

Everything before and since, all in a flash not seen but felt (Haas 193).

It had happened so quickly that he could not see it but only fell it showing how quickly everything could change.

A body stretched out of the forest floor, no threat to anybody (Haas 240).

He describes plume as a harmless figure even though he has a gun pointed at his chest as if he was a part of nature its self.

Historical references

In the book it quotes that it was in 1875 when he saw dead men.

That is just after the civil war that ended in 1865.

In the book it is focused on horses and that means it has to be in the old times which is the mid 1800s.

There are coal towns in the book so that says the book is old too.
