The Red Pony
"Would you like to come on a mouse hunt tomorrow, sir?"
"Mouse hunt, Jody?" Grandfather chuckled. "Have the people of this generation come down to hunting mice?" …
Jody explained, "The dogs eat them, sir. It wouldn't be much like hunting Indians, I guess."
"No, not much—but then later, when the troops were hunting Indians and shooting children and burning teepees, it wasn't much different from your mouse hunt." (4.60-4.61, 4.64-4.65)
