The Shepherd's Life: A People's History of the Lake District
Jun 24, 2017
Wonderful. Beautiful writing-- filled with sensitivity and depth. And a bite! Weaves the history of being on the land, one with the land, and caring for the land... plus making a living for your family from it. About sheep and sheepdogs, grandfathers and fathers. About being part of the Lake District culture yet forced to leave it for a piece, and the coming back. Really interesting information about sheep and how the land was/is used in common and how the tragedy of the commons was , mostly, avoided. Prose and poetry! One of my best reads in 2017!
