Synopsis: Author, journalist and small-holder John Bezzant brings together a charming mixture of folk history and countryside tales in this heart-warming account of that remarkable working partnership: shepherds and their dogs.

He weaves in tales of their remarkable courage, devotion and endurance as these clever animals interact with their masters to achieve some unbelieveable feats.

Bezzant covers the sheepdog at war, stories of some of the most famous sheepdogs in history, drovers and their dogs, some outstanding shepherds, how they train their dogs, bizarre shepherding incidents and the shepherds' seasons.

The book is fully illustrated with evocative black and white photographs.

A touching, informative and anecdotal account.

About the Author: John Bezzant runs a smallholding in Aberdeenshire and has been involved in animal husbandry all his life. He is author of several books on rabbiting, terriers, air-rifle shooting and tools and machinery for the smallholder. He has written for many country magazines including Country Smallholding and Dogs Monthly.
