Publisher's Summary

Prospecting was a lonely business for Tappan, but his burro Jenet was good company, and more. She knew the trails and waterholes better than Tappan, from the scorching heat and poison air of Death Valley to the blinding blizzards of Arizona's mountains. Jenet tracked with him, faithfully, as his only friend. And he repaid her loyalty with a final, supreme effort of heart, will, and spirit.

Sweet Little Story About a Man and His Burro

Sweet little story about a wandering prospector and his fine and faithful burro, Jenet. Some adventure, a little romance, twists in plot, and an inevitable ending. Highly recommended.

Sad and Sweet

This is one of the shortest ZG stories and one of the saddest. I suppose if you're not an animal lover you may think it daft. But it's a favorite for me.

ship of the desert...

great short story, with twist and turns, deception, love, trickery, strife, and the best bureau I never met.
