Photographic tribute to the lowliest beast of burden with captioned pictures of burros about their various labors in Mexico and the western United States. Includes pictures of Pike’s Peak, Colorado, Santa Fe, New Mexico and scenes in the Rocky Mountains. “He has developed mines, built railroads, made towns, and been the vehicle to success of thousands of pioneers. He can go where the horse cannot, can eat what the mule will not, and when there is nothing to eat, he goes hungry without complaint. His philosophy is beautiful - if he cannot get alfalfa he eats straw, if the rope is stronger than his strength he resigns himself to the halter, and accepts the inevitable” (Introduction).
