Last of the Donkey Pilgrims

Recently I read a unique book entitled Last of the Donkey Pilgrims by Kevin O'Hara. The author served in the Vietnam War and, in order to overcome the memories of the war's horrors, he decided to walk around Ireland (his ancestral home) with his donkey, Missie. O'Hara is a skillful, witty writer, recounting history and Irish lore, as well as introducing many unusual characters.
