The Big Island (also called the "Big I") refers to the island of "Ha-Why" (Hawaii) in the Hawaiian Islands, the scene of chapter 6, "Sloosha's Crossin'." After the "fall," presumably a nuclear holocaust, the island is one of several primitive enclaves of survivors, including Zachry's tribe, the Valleymen and the brutal Konas.
