This is a selection of anecdotes about life as a farmer in Cumbria. The writer grew up on his farm, and generations of his family before him farmed the land. You develop a real feeling for the land you are hefted to and this comes across in these stories. We hear of the cattle, the sheep, his succession of working dogs, the weather and the neighbours, in an amusing and chatty style as the snippets of Jim Webster’s countryman’s wisdom fall gently. I love this collection.
I, for one, am hoping that this short collection of blogs finds a wide and generous audience - not least because I'm sure there's more where this came from. And at 99p you can't go wrong!
In the modern era of supermarkets, processed food and vegan activism, divorced from the realities of traditional farming and rural life Mr Websters book is a refreshing glimpse at an industry many of remain ignorant of. The reader will also gain some facinating insights into sheep!
Overall worth a read!
Sheep and collie dogs are prominent, but the occasional passerby gets a wry mention.
My favourite is about the bunch of runners who race past him without speaking (noses firmly in the air), except for one friendly Irish lad who is trailing behind them...
