‘Whenever in the course of the daily hunt the red hunter comes across a scene that is strikingly beautiful or sublime –a black thunder cloud with the rainbow’s glowing arch above the mountain,  a white waterfall in the heart of a green gorge, a vast prairie tinged with the red blood of sunset – he pauses for an instant in the attitude of worship.  He sees no need for setting apart one day in sevenas a holy day, since all days are God’s’
