The donkey who carried the wounded: the famous story of Simpson and his donkey

Jackie French

Most Australians know of Simpson and his donkey. Few know where the donkey came from, or what happened to him after Gallipoli. In this carefully researched book, acclaimed children's author Jackie French tells his story. It's also the story of Jack Simpson and New Zealand stretcher bearer, Richard Henderson, who literally took up the reins after Simpson's death. For children and adults alike, The donkey who carried the wounded adds to our understanding of this enduring ANZAC legend.
