Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"To protect his donkey a little boy must undertake a long journey across eastern Pennsylvania in search of safety for them both. His life at an uncle's farm was misery. It was there he became best friends with his donkey. The boy vows to keep his friend safe. Donkey is a road weary, bedraggled specimen, but devoted to his boy. It is the boy's resourcefulness and kindness that carry him miles from his past. His relationship with donkey is a bond of deep love and mutual empathy. Together they trudge dark roads each night and sleep days in woodland glades. Before he can start a new life he has one more hurdle to get past. They are stopped in their urgent flight toward safety by illness. His new friends are there to help him"--Amazon.
