This odd-ball armchair travelogue by Kim McGowan tells an extraordinary tale of a donkey trek through the Transkei of 1988. Two agreeable men, two donkeys and two dogs set off from Kokstad. They are chasing visions of reaching Khartoum round the western margins of Africa, but don't even make it to East London. Donkey Crossings is the whacky, off-beat, jaundiced, and altogether wonderful account of that journey.
