From James Rebanks, the Herdwick Shepherd, comes The Shepherd’s Life, a story of the Lake District and its people which could redefine the literature of rural life
Some people’s lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks’ isn’t. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years.
