The second of David Kennard's wonderful stories of life on an English sheep farm is every bit as good as the first, and I highly recommend both books!
Kennard writes with a quiet passion for his calling as a shepherd, and is both educational and entertaining. He's a gift for using words to create such vivid pictures that you almost fancy you were there as he recounts his tales of family, neighbors, days working with his dogs, the challenges facing today's farmers, and the beauty of the rugged English coast. The dogs, of course, steal the show, and Kennard captures their individual personalities beautifully.
More than once, I laughed out loud when reading this book. The Dogs of Windcutter Down will take you through a full range of emotions, but at the end of the day, you're left with a good feeling and the sincere hope that there's another book on the way!
