Part 1, Chapter 9 Summary

The narrator asks about his father, First Raise, and why he was not home very often. Teresa insists he was home often and that he was on his way home when he died. The narrator remembers he ans his mother finding his father's body in the snow, though Teresa insists some nameless person found his body. The narrator asks if his father was unhappy and she insists he was simply restless. Teresa complains about her husband's habit of drinking in the bars and compares her son to him. The narrator thinks that no one expects much from Teresa and that is what they usually get, which may be why his father stayed away so much. Then his mother asks about his wife and suggests there is not enough for him on the ranch and he should look elsewhere.
