Review: Saving Simon: How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me the Meaning of Compassion, by Jon Katz

I had read a couple of Katz’s books on dogs before and enjoyed them. This one is another good read. He lives in upstate New York, north of Albany near the villages of Salem and Cambridge on a small farm with a variety of animals including three donkeys. Simon, the title donkey, was gravely neglected by his previous owner and Jon and his wife, Maria, nursed him back to robust health. Jon had a difficult childhood and his various animal companions over the years have helped him to heal psychologically and to be able to reach out to others, human and animal. You can visit Jon’s website at www.bedlamfarm.com. Share this book with your animal lover friends.

RATING: * * * A good read
