A late fall drive in New England takes an unexpected turn when Frank and Cici Avery—young and unhappily married—see a large snapping turtle on the road ahead. Should they rescue it? Or leave it be killed. This short story, first published in the 1950s, is presented with an original introduction in which Matthiessen highlights the effect his fascination with nature had on his career.
