Joab's Fire is set in Southern Alberta, Canada. The cover artwork was done by an artist, Darlene Crane, who lives a mile from where the story is set.

Lynn Squire grew up in the area and used what her family called "The Old Place" as the Black's farm. Here are some sketches done by Darlene Crane of the former buildings. The farm no longer exists, in fact it was burned down...but on purpose. The only thing left to indicate that a farm once existed is a windmill and a well.
