A charming celebration of Britain's pastoral heritage.,
This review is from: Counting Sheep: A Celebration of the Pastoral Heritage of Britain (Hardcover)
This country's fortunes were once founded on sheep, and they are still part of the fabric of the countryside.
"Sheep are in our national blood," writes sheep farmer turned barrister Philip Walling. "They are part of the life of the land that still pulses beneath the surface of modern Britain."
He profiles the native breeds of sheep and learns about their past, talks to the shepherds and farmers, and confronts the modern realities of sheep farming.
A charming celebration of Britain's pastoral heritage.
