When David sees the car from Undset's, why does he say he could have walked right out of Bentrock ?

David knew what had happened when he witnessed Undset's Buick station wagon, which he used as a hearse, backing out of his driveway. David Knew Mary Little Soldier was dead and the reasons had something to do with Uncle Frank. David was sickened by the whole situation. He blamed is family for covering for Uncle Frank and he blamed his community for not caring about an Indian woman that was being abused. David wanted to walk away from it all.
