A wild burro’s restless curiosity takes him on an epic journey on which he must confront danger, fear and sorrow. Set at the turn of the 19th century against the vast landscape of the American South West, Hotey is an inspiring adventure story. In the donkey’s quest to find his home, he meets and learns life lessons from a bird, a mule, a horse and one courageous human. He will find friendship, loyalty and love but he will make an even greater discovery; he will find himself. Cowboys, cattle wars, silver mining and sheepherding are just some of the surprises in store for the unwitting hero of Hotey. Lost, taken from his herd and captured, he never gives up hope. The unforgettable characters in this Western-themed, coming-of-age, fable will touch and delight the hearts of readers from ten to one hundred and ten. "Hotey is a little donkey. Hotey is also an epic adventure and a life-journey. Josephine Bailey has written a classic, which keeps company with the lessons of Charlotte's Web and the adventure and scope of Scott O'Dell's work. At turns funny, charming, sad and wonder-filled, and yes, at times scary, Hotey is a book to give to your young adult readers, and one certainly to read to your littler children. You will be very happy you did." (David Mickey Evans (writer/director The Sandlot, Radio Flyer)
