THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER
Affectionate, evocative, illuminating. A story of survival - of a flock, a landscape and a disappearing way of life. I love this book (Nigel Slater)
The Shepherd’s Life
It started simply enough with a few pictures of Herdwick sheep on Twitter and just got out of hand.
James Rebanks, better known to his tens of thousands of followers round the world as @herdyhepherd1, has produced a brilliant evocation of a threatened way of life.
His family has farmed sheep in the remote valleys of Northern Lakeland for hundreds of years yet the culture that maintained them and that has so captivated the readers of his book has been allowed to fade into the landscape.
In The Shepherd’s Life James celebrates that culture and brings it to life in a most compelling way. Not before time.
There are only about 300 or so fell farming families left in Lakeland. When they’re gone they’re gone. This passionate rallying cry puts them centre stage where they belong.
