TAMPA, Fla., March 26, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Robert West is a retired university educator with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston, a master of fine arts from Tulane University, a master of arts in education from Morehead State University, and an ABD from the University of Missouri, and served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. He has completed his new book, “Lollygag”: an evoking story of Lollygag, a one-of-a-kind donkey who, through her efforts, saves the life of a delinquent youth and leaves lessons worth keeping at heart.
“‘Lollygag’ by Robert West is an engaging and powerful story. Based on his experiences working on a real-life wagon train with VisionQuest, an innovative program for at-risk teens, Robert witnessed firsthand that adversity and the healing power of the animals, especially the mules, providing troubled teens with a path of honor that allowed them to heal and to turn their lives around. VisionQuest founder Bob Burton called the VQ mules ‘the best therapists.’ Robert has captured perfectly the spirit of his experience on the wagon train and the joy in seeing traumatized children find positive rites of passage to adulthood.”
