The Shepherd's Life
- Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape
- By: James Rebanks
- Narrated by: Bryan Dick
- Length: 7 hrs and 34 mins
Some people's lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks' isn't. He's the first son of a shepherd who was the first son of a shepherd himself; his family have lived and worked in the Lake District of Northern England for generations, further back than recorded history. It's a part of the world known mainly for its romantic descriptions by Wordsworth and the much-loved illustrated children's books of Beatrix Potter. But James' world is quite different. His way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand.

A true gem
A rare, wonderful window into the life -- and land -- of a shepherd. Family. Flock. I loved every minute of it.
