The men choose to forego important areas of the house such as the kitchen where they could have found evidence against Minnie. Instead they choose to concentrate on the barn and the bedroom to find evidence. However only the women understand that a woman’s real domain is the kitchen so they concentrate on it more to gain evidence. For example when the sheriff sees the kitchen he comments “Nothing here but kitchen things.” This indicates male reluctance to protrude the “woman’s domain” in order to discover and explore. When the two women find evidence for the murder they debate on whether to expose the murder or to bury it but their final choice resonates women solidarity.
The story begins in the barren and dusty Spanish plains surrounded by white hills that the story gets its name from. The protagonists simply known as “the American” and Jigs are depicted sitting in a bar waiting for a train on the train station. Both order beers and while sipping through them they end up in a discussion over an “operation”. The author has not explicitly pointed it out but the operation most probably refers to an abortion. The woman is shown trying to protect her right to bear a child while the male protagonist is shown convincing the woman to have the operation to ensure things go back to how they were before. During the discourse the woman asks the man what an inscription on a beaded curtain means and the man tells her it is a kind of drink. The woman asks him for trying it out and both order this new drink with water. This signifies that the protagonists are out to try new things in life which in turn indicates that they are most probably travelers. The author shows the struggle between the protagonists where they are trying to convince each other for and against the operation but the story ends without a clear decision.

488-89). As Carver himself explains in "On Writing," short stories are "glimpses" of life and, more importantly, "illuminating" glimpses (p. 17). In other words, from Carver's point of view, even though they are nothing more than a brief glimpse at a particular moment in life, short stories illuminate one's understanding of life, insofar as they are focused, concentrated and in-depth glimpses.' Accordingly, while his literary style lends to his categorization as a minimalist, Carver is a maximalist' insofar as meaning is concerned.
