  Red Mule  
  In Red Mule Jesse Stuart tells the story of a boy called, Scrappie, who develops a friendship with an old man, called Red Mule. Red Mule cared for mules all his life, and continued to do so, even as farming became mechanized with tractors, trucks, etc. Even as town’s people began to ridicule Red Mule for his eccentric devotion to the animals, Scrappie, stood by him. Then suddenly events changed, and Red’s lowly mules came to the rescue.
