In depression-era America Eleanor Roosevelt established a WPA Packhorse Library program. This program was established to get books into the hands of those who do not have access to Libraries. This is the story of one group of women who became these packhorse librarians. I fell in love with the story of these librarians.

Written in the voice of a city boy turned country lover, this very fun read will take you to where you did not know you needed to go. Christopher McDougall moves deep into the heart of Lancaster from Philadelphia where they adopt a donkey. Chris is encouraged to give sherman a job, so he finds "burro racing". What follows is Chris and Sherman and several friends who take on donkey training so that their donkeys will race.
