Illustrated by Judith Hunt.

Prospector Rupert M. Sherwood and his burro, Prunes, are best friends. They go together like salt and pepper. When Rupe asks his neighbors to help look after Prunes, an unlikely friendship blossoms between people of the town and the remarkable prune-colored burro.

Prunes and Rupe is a story of friendship, love, and flapjacks.

"Based on true events and a stone monument erected in memory of the original Prunes in 1933, Prunes and Rupe is a children's picturebook about the bond between prospector Rupert M. Sherwood and his faithful burro, Prunes. They were a team for nearly forty-one years until their bodies became so worn and tired they couldn't work anymore. Rupe had to go to the lowlands on doctor's orders, and Prunes was faithfully tended to by Rupe's former neighbors. But when a terribly bitter snowstorm came, it would be the beginning of the end for the old donkey, and when Rupe's master's time came, his last wish was to be buried with Prunes. The detailed, folksy artwork complements this warmhearted tale of loyalty and fast friendship."
