Dad's Stories of Working with Mules, Patricia Coffee, Storyteller

A good work animal is a good work animal but a gentled, good work animal is worth more. My dad told stories about plowing with mules on the "Old Home Place near Story City. I listened, did some research, and began to tell about, "My Dad and the Mules."
