Product Description:

A lone little burro roams his home in the Grand Canyon, but his affinity for company, often in the form of people with flapjacks, gets him mixed up in more adventures than he ever counted on. After his friend dies, Brighty (named after the Bright Angel Creek) is kind of on his own. He does have one other friend that he summers with and who is willing to help out as long as nobody tries to make him do anything he doesn't want to do! Brighty ends up in scrapes with cougars and mountain lions, meets President Teddy Roosevelt, and even helps with the search for the murderer of his friend. Through it all his huge heart, antics, and unique character will keep readers smiling. ~ Megan

Publisher Description:

A determined little burro earns the loyalty and affection of everyone he encounters in this classic story from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry.

Long ago, a lone little burro roamed the high cliffs of the Grand Canyon and touched the hearts of all who knew him: a grizzled old miner, a big-game hunter, even President Teddy Roosevelt. Named Brighty by the prospector who befriended him, he remained a free spirit at heart. But when a ruthless claim-jumper murdered the prospector, loyal Brighty risked everything to bring the killer to justice.

Brighty’s adventures have delighted generations of readers, and he has become the symbol of a joyous way of life. Some people say that you can even see his spirit roving the canyon on moonlit nights—forever wild, forever free.
