AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Based on the most famous animal in Australian history, Simpson's Donkey tells the story of his service during the Gallipoli campaign where for three weeks he was one of several donkeys that Simpson used to carry wounded men down to Anzac Cove. His life before and after Gallipoli is a mystery but Peter Stanley has beautifully imagined the rest (Libraries Australia).
