The Shepherd’s Life: A Tale of the Lake District by James Rebanks



I loved this because it’s not about a calm, restful life lived in nature but the real, visceral, passionate and often angry experience which is modern farming from the perspective of someone trying to do right by his heritage and our damaged natural world.

Some people’s lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks’ isn’t. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years.
