|"Soon thereafter, while chasin'
down a particular lamebrained donkey and her wobbly foal, I noticed the
pots and pans tinkling in the mess wagon. It weren't the usual clanking
and banging neither. I felt a trembling rise right
through my pony's hooves. Twisting round in the saddle, I saw a fearsome
mountain of yellow dust and whirlwinds.|
'Buffalo! Buffalo!' shouted the men, 'headed this way!'"
