The story is set in a forest " on the eastern spurs of the Karpathians." It is winter, and night time. We aren't given a date when the story is set, but the tensions and technologies suggest late 19th to early 20th century.

"the interlopers" takes place in the Carpathian Mountains in southeast Europe, probably in the early 1900s.

You should remember that the setting of any story is the time it occurs, and the place it happens.  When and Where.

In this book, the time is the Great Depression, and the place changes, but it is primarily Chicago, and the Midwest.  Isn't it?  Or is it the lower pennisula of Michigan? :>
