The setting of the story is a rural cabin that sits at the base of an unstable mountain. The family often hears rumblings from the mountain.
"Although they are entirely comfortable, mention is made of the harsh winter weather and the dangerous position of the cottage, over which towers a mountain. The noise of stones tumbling down the mountain has often startled the family at midnight."
