A shepherd on the family farm in the Lake District, 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.

About the Author:

James Rebanks is a shepherd based in the Lake District. His first book, The Shepherd's Life, won The Lakeland Book of the Year 2015 and was shortlisted for both The Wainwright Prize and the Ondaatje Prize. Also known as the Herdwick Shepherd, his Twitter account of daily life in the Lakes has a strong international following. His family have lived and farmed in the Lake District for six hundred years.

Review:

Combines excellent photography with more life-writings -- Richard Benson, 'Books of the Year' * Independent * [Praise for The Shepherd's Life]: Affectionate, evocative, illuminating. A story of survival - of a flock, a landscape and a disappearing way of life. I love this book -- Nigel Slater, author of Toast and The Kitchen Diaries A powerful - and quietly electrifying - meditation... Page by page, he builds what amounts to a 21st-century pastoral manifesto. The book is an unsentimental education, part history of farming in the Lake District, part personal memoir. And yet it still soars... Rebanks's prose is beautifully sure-footed -- Helen Davies * Sunday Times * Rebanks's enthusiasm and talent for poetic writing is infectious... [His] words create not only a gorgeous landscape painting of the Lake District and its inhabitants, human, animal, bird and fish, but also a useful social document... What is most striking about this book is its authenticity; this is the real thing -- Carol Midgley * The Times * A wonderfully detailed and candid account of a life that is both individual and typical of this role in rural society... told with perfect pitch, in prose that flows as easily as speech, cleaves hungrily to the particular, and shifts without strain between the workaday and the imaginative -- David Craig * Guardian * An enlightening, exquisitely written account... I was beguiled by this book, an eloquent love-letter to a cherished way of life -- Brian Viner * Daily Mail *

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. I am the luckiest man alive, because I get to live and work in the most beautiful place on earth: Matterdale in the English Lake District.When I was a child we didn't really go anywhere, except a week in the Isle of Man when I was about ten years old, and I never left Britain until I was twenty.Even now, years later, the best bit of any travelling is coming home. Bringing us into the world of shepherd's baking competitions, sheep shows and moments out on the fell watching the sheep run away home, James Rebanks interweaves thoughts and reflections on the art of shepherding with his photographs of the valley, people and animals that make up the daily life of the fells. A life lived by the three hundred surviving fell farming families, this is a book of photos and words filled with reverence and love. Seller Inventory # APG9781846148903
