The Shepherds Life

£8.99 (Sold out)

The Shepherds Life by James Rebanks

This book is our all time best seller, published last April in hardback, we’ve sold several hundred copies, now in paperback we’ve seen another resurgence.

It’s a no nonsense recollection of how hard the life of a Lake District sheep farmer can be and how these animals and their owners have shaped the look of the fells around Cumbria for centuries, written in an engaging and easy style to keep you turning the pages.
