The Shepherd’s Life – James Rebanks

This is not a book I would naturally drawn to, but…

I found The Shepherd’s Life by James Rebanks captivating. He describes a deep attachment to place and pride in hard, honest work. An alternate view of life in England’s Lake District which is very different to the typical travel guide.

The Illustrated Herdwick Shepherd

James Rebanks became a bestselling author and gathered a huge following on Twitter for his wonderfully entertaining writings and his photographs of the uplands landscape, sheep and working dogs of Matterdale.

This book brings together a generous selection of pictures and Rebanks's poetic and sometimes hilarious descriptions of a shepherd's life, the Herdwick sheep, his collie sheepdogs, the local wildlife and local characters.

This title is a perfect companion to his autobiographical/travel literature book The Shepherd’s Life.
