mulesAs such books go, this is not your average miners’ mule rendition.

This coffee table-size picture book has the greatest photography I have ever seen. There is a photo of a mule team pulling a wagon that would put Budweiser advertising to shame! Included among the photos are great essays, history, anecdotes and personal observations from a distinguished group of experts, with one thing in common: their love of the mule. It shows in this unexpected special treat. —Linda Wommack
