Kim says: “If you care about animals you will find this memoir interesting and touching. Jon Katz has written books and blogs about his experiences on a farm in upstate New York, mostly chronicling the life of his many dogs. This will take you inside the life and heart of a very special donkey. Along the way he offers observations and insights into other relationships–both animal and human.”
