This is a heartwarming romp through pastures, trails and landscapes that most of us have never experienced. Beginning with the rescue of a neglected donkey, the story blossoms into a rewarding journey with the ever-expanding and far flung cast of oddball characters and goats and other donkeys that McDougall meets and bonds with in the service of his mission to give little Sherman “a job”. If I were to pick a bone, it would be with the subtitle, “The Donkey With the Heart of a Hero.” That's not what this book is about. Sherman is a donkey with a pretty much standard burro-shaped heart, who was in need of a kind, understanding and intuitive home, which he finds thanks to McDougall and family and his bevy of unique friends. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
