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.

This book fully deserves its rave media reviews.As well as being a sheep farmer's diary it also contains thought provoking comments about our education system and its misinformed views about the value of manual labour.This author found his own way through learning but remained loyal to his long standing way of life.He would have much to contribute as an adviser in education and employment.
