Seton's Description:
Donkeys by the hundreds! Twelve-year-old Chico Filippo, whose own donkeys were confiscated years before by the German army, canít stay away from the newly set up American Remount Depot. Here, in the last months of World War II in Italy, thousands of supply mules and donkeys are processed and sent onto the fierce mountain fighting in the Apennines. One of the handlers introduces Chico to a small courageous animal the boy names Sergeant Donkey. Drawn into friendship and then into unexpected danger, Chico must demonstrate his own simple courage. More than an animal or war story, this short book has a depth of truth about people of different ages and nationalities who still share a common love of the land and of human dignity. 87 pp, Quality Softcover, Ages 9-up

Comment by Dr. Clark: Chico is a Catholic boy; on page 1, he makes the Sign of the Cross and says Angelus prayers. Good historical background, in German-controlled Italian village, 1944. American soldier prays Guardian Angel prayer. Mules carry supplies to American soldiers, and Catholic Brothers. Fr. Antonio, local parish priest; Abbey of St. Isadore. Mass sung to the Blessed Mother. Catholic culture on almost every page.

This book is part of a treasury of wholesome, character-building literature from Bethlehem Books.
