 A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess - Amanda Owen

Large Print Book Our Price: £25.49  - Click book title for availability and further details

More tales of life at Ravenseat, the remote Yorkshire hill farm Amanda Owen shares with husband Clive, eight children and 900 sheep. She describes the constant challenges the family face, as they tend their sheep on some of the country's highest, wildest moors. Writing with warmth and humour, Amanda tells how nine-year-old Miles gets his first flock, Reuben takes up the flugelhorn and she gives birth to a new baby girl. She also gives a new home to an ageing and neglected horse, while Clive is almost arrested on a midnight stakeout to catch a sheep-rustling dog. A delight for anyone who has dreamed of living close to nature.
