The book has a majestic sweep and keen attention to detail and accuracy. Any one of these aspects of the book would make it worth the modest price. But The truly wonderful thing about this book and the beast it describes, is that it makes you think.

The donkey (Equus asinus) is both ancient and mysterious and is called by many names: donkey, burro, wild jack, hinny, and ass. Donkeys and their relative, the mule (a donkey/horse cross), have lived with humans for thousands of years. References to mules date back at least 3,000 years. In the Bible, Genesis 36:24 refers to the mules in the wilderness. In Homer's Odyssey a mule cart transports Princess Nausicaa to the seashore. Mohammed rode upon a mule into battle. Jesus' family on a donkey during the flight into Egypt was a favorite subject of Renaissance painters. By the time of Don Quixote, the donkey was one of the most beloved animals in all of European literature. In Cervantes, the donkey is stubborn and faithful, loving and intelligent. Today, the humble and elegant donkey is becoming a popular companion animal. In the Western states, one can see donkeys grazing peacefully alongside horses on private land. Miniature donkeys are especially popular pets. There is also a growing awareness of donkey abuse and neglect, and donkey rescue societies have sprung up to offer aid. Along with wild horses, wild burros are part of America's heritage. Complete with history, lore, science, ecology, and inspirational stories celebrating the spiritual bond between humans and donkeys, Donkey: The Mystique of Equus Asinus expresses the joy that these saintly creatures with big, furry ears bring to our lives.

Donkeys are like the very necessities of life. Perhaps that is why this most helpful animal in the history of mankind has been overlooked. This book by Michael Tobias and Jane Morrison elevate Donkeys to their rightful position during their time in the world. It illumines how many of the original remarkable signs of origin of the Donkey in human life remained indiscernable. Now, through their careful study and beautiful presentation the psyche and solid majesty of Equus Asinus will remain carefully preserved for all time.

Not really a book about donkeys. A book mostly about the human art and literature that have donkeys in them, which is a much different thing and much less interesting to me. But it is quite funny, if unintentionally so. The authors report on something called a "donkeyphilia séance," with a picture. My favorite sentence: "We believe that most donkeys, if given the chance, would fashion a world without violence." OK by me, what are we waiting for?

Useful background information and reference.

I am only half way through the book. It is an easy read. The authors clearly love donkeys. I have twenty-five such books. With this one I am occasionally learning something new about donkeys. Lots of pictures. Something I very much appreciate.

Great book on every aspect of donkeys, whether you own one or more, or if you just admire their strength of character and want to learn more. Beautiful photos and highly recommended.

Very nice book, as we have a burro.

I had been wanting this book for a long time, but was a bit disapointed with it when I finally got it. The writers' hearts were certainly in the right place, but it was very badly edited. Many of the sentences didn't make complete sense and many times beautiful ideas were thrown out but not developed at all. I think a really good editing job would help the authors do justice for these wonderful animals.
I enjoyed "Travels with My Donkey" much more.
Not what I expected at all.
