Brighty, a shaggy young burro, lives wild and free in the Grand Canyon of Arizona. He roams the steep cliffs with the squirrels and rabbits. But his favorite friend is Old Timer, the prospector who shares hot biscuits and calls him Bright Angel. One day Old Timer doesn't answer Brighty's loud Eeeee-aw! Instead, the friendly animal encounters a ruthless claim jumper. Will Brighty be able to bring the killer to justice and make the wilderness safe again?

Marguerite Henry, author of the Newbery Award-winning classic Misty of Chincoteague, based this delightful story on the adventures of a real-life Grand Canyon burro. Brighty touched the hearts of all who knew him -even President Teddy Roosevelt. John McDonough's animated performance brings out the burro's joyous free spirit and courageous determination.

    " I read this book until my copy actually fell apart. My grandparents bought it for me from a gift shop at the Grand Canyon when we went there when I was a kid. As soon as I finished it I would flip back to the first page and start reading all over again. "

    " When we lived in Arizona, we had the chance to visit the Grand Canyon a few times. This story about a little donkey who lives in the Grand Canyon is one of my favorites. Great little mystery for kids and you can't help but fall in love with Brighty as he has his adventures. "

    " Sweet little book about a little burro that lived in the Grand Canyon. Still as fun as when I first read it ages ago, and a nice little trip down memory lane! "
