I keep meaning to tell y’all about a book that I read over the holidays.
Picked it up at the Cannon Beach Book Company when we were down there in mid-December.
The Shepherd’s Life- Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape
Up in the fells of the Lake District in northern England folks like James Rebanks raise Herdwick sheep, a heritage breed of sheep that is amazing hardy and awfully cute
But the book is about more than the sheep. It’s about community, and family, and belonging to a place.
It’s not romantic, and not sentimental, but full of love for the landscape and the lifestyle.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and might even read it again.

I received this book for Christmas but have not and a chance to read it yet. So your positive review is encouraging and motivating. Thanks!
Cool- hope you enjoy it!
