A college student living in a sleepy mountain town is transported to ancient Crete during a dream, only to meet a philosophizing donkey in the new fiction by Dan Tilley, “Absolutely Hutely: Dan and Hutely Meet the Minoans” (published by Lulu).

Dan McCaugh is inspired to study ancient philosophy by his enlightened professor, Dr. Dean. Dan studies the writings of Emanuel Kant, David Hume and Vico before researching ancient Greek history.

One night, a dream transports him to the land of Crete, considered by many to be the birthplace of Western civilization. Dan is guided through Crete and Athens by H.G. Hutely, a donkey who time-travels to places where democracy and freedom are threatened. Hutely also is a professor of life and an honored animal of the Historical Guide Academy.

As the two traverse space and time, they encounter mythological figures such as Crete’s King Minos, the Oracle of Delphi and many more. Tilley describes the book as a Pandora’s box of human drama, adventure, romance, comedy and critical history that will lead readers on a fantastic journey through the ages.
