James Rebanks ‘ account of The Shepherd’s Life was the publishing sensation of 2015. In lucid and precise prose James tells of a way of life which connects fundamentally with the land he loves, while never romanticising the gruelling work which has occupied his family for 600 years. The result is a work of astounding authenticity and passion, which inspired the beautiful follow up, The Illustrated Herdwick Shepherd. We are tremendously pleased to welcome James to Ely to celebrate the publication of the paperback, and to share with us the joys of the shepherding life.
