James Rebanks is a shepherd to the very marrow of his bones. His family has been shepherds for generations in the Lakes District of Northern England. He immerses the reader in the day-to-day seasonal work of raising sheep, showing the harshness as well as the deeply rewarding value of this traditional way of life. Rebanks gives a beautiful account of his earliest memories, working alongside his grandfather and father, describing their abiding love of sheep and the land they call their home. One is left with a profound appreciation of Rebanks, and of people like him, who revere and uphold this tradition. –Greg
