Book – The Shepherd’s Life

A Tale of the Lake District by James Rebanks

Life as a hill farmer in Cumbria is a pipe-dream for many town-bound country lovers yearning for a simpler way of life, but some are born to it - despite anything they may have planned.

Described as "modern dispatches from an ancient landscape", James Rebanks' best-selling book reveals the hardships and the joys of his inheritance.

The Shepherd's Life by James Rebanks front cover

In flowing and lucid prose, James Rebanks takes us through a shepherd's year: the quiet productivity of the summer; the lucrative autumrn, a time of livestock fairs and flock planning; the inevitable harshness of winter, struggling to keep sheep alive and fed when the elements and environment seem to contrive against it; and the equally inevitable uplift of spring and new life.

As the Herdwick Shepherd, James has attracted a massive Twitter following throughout the world, attracted by his unpretentious appreciation of his life and landscape, and hooked by the beautiful and evocative photographs, many of which appear in the book.

The Shepherd's Life will win James an even greater following, and his existing followers will relish the opportunity to know more about the man, his dogs, and his take on life.
