Book Review!!

"The Natural Superiority of Mules" by John Hauer.

I think this is a beautiful book that mule lovers would enjoy. The Natural Superiority of Mules is a collection of articles, essays and stories about mules from a distinguished group of experts, with one thing in common, their love of the mule. All are enhanced by the addition of fabulous photos. It covers mule breeding, mule genetics, mule training, mules in history and the use of mules in other countries (the book is, of course, American). Initially I bought this book thinking it would be a nice "coffee table" book, full of scenic shots of long ears but it is much much more than that. It is a real insight into what mules are capable of and how they have shaped peoples lives. Quite simply I can recommend it highly enough!
