The Baroness is now alone on the farm and starts selling all of her possessions. As the house grows bare, Farah starts wearing his best and fanciest clothing.
Next she gets rid of all of her animals, giving them to her friends.
Finally, the people start to leave, like Pooran Singh, the blacksmith. She gives him a present that he has wanted for a long time: a ring that she buys with the money from selling furniture.
After Denys dies she looks for a sign, and sees a big white rooster attack a chameleon, plucking out its tongue. She scares off the rooster and kills the chameleon to put it out of its misery. The world seems like a terrible place after receiving such a sign.
Ingrid Lindstrom, a neighbor, comes to visit and help the Baroness get through the hard goodbye.
One of her last tasks is getting the squatters, the Natives who live on the farm, reassigned by the government to a new territory. They want to stay together, and the Baroness manages to get them permission.
