The Burro Express is a quartly publication focusing on humor, the miners of today and yesterday. Jake, the burro who keeps us laughing.
Jake and his Secret Mining Pal have been Nevada's best kept secret since the late 1900's. when a lone pick and shovel miner and his burro staked their claim in a genuine ghost town by the name of Goldfield in Central Nevada in the United States of America.
The Secret Mining Pal is a recluse hermit going about with his silent burro. He meets a lot of people in his treks but leaves no tracks behind.
His few friends are scattered all over history, in the mountains, deserts, valleys and cities where he has lived and lives. His old friend Jim Ramsey and other old-timers write him letters of "Greetings" telling him of the "goings on" and about "the diggings" in the different states he spends time prospecting.
The "Greetings" letters have made Jake a household name, well known for his silence. A Burro that doesn't even bray but seems to talk with his famous looks directed at his best pal or others in the world of wherever miners and cowboys are found.
Jake and his silent mining pal have become well known along the central Nevada deserts and beyond. They are trusted friends like the kind anyone wishes they would meet at least once in a life time.
