Críticas

A frank and non-sugar-coated view of modern shepherding in northern England. The highs, the lows, the challenges, and the rewards conveyed in often-lyrical descriptions.

This read just as good as "Pastoral Song," but focuses more on the rhythms of shepherding as a way of life. It isn't wandering fields and sitting with sheep, it's a much more involved process for modern farmers to both care for and improve their flocks as a livelihood. James' pride in his work comes through in every chapter.

This was a fantastic memoir of living on the land in rural England. Rebanks draws a clear picture between the health (and heartache) of traditional framing methods and the harm industrial, modern farming has on the land and the people living on the land. He writes like James Herriot - personal stories that make it clear to the reader the love he has for his farm.

I read this on a visit to the Lake District for my cousins wedding - it seemed appropriate for the trip. Its an interesting book which makes sheep farming sound like a complete nightmare! I quite enjoyed it whilst also finding the voice a little annoying at times.
