The setting of the novel is Maycomb, Alabama. Scout describes Depression-era Maycomb as "an old tired town when I first knew it", summer heat and slow pace of life. She notes, "There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County".
