    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.

    From the best-selling author of The Shepherd's Life, a breathtaking book of wisdom that chronicles an ancient way of living that deeply resonates in our modern world. The English Lake District comes into full focus: the sheep competitions of the spring, the sweeping pastures of the summer, beloved sheep dogs in the fall, and the harsh snows of winter. A celebration of a way of life still very much alive, The Shepherd's View is a poetic and artistic achievement from one of England's most celebrated new voices.

    Chez les Rebanks, on est berger depuis dix générations. Très jeune, James reprend la ferme familiale. Quelques années plus tard, il décide de recommencer des études : il entrera même à Oxford ; mais l'appel de la ferme est trop fort, c'est avec ses moutons qu'il est vraiment "l'homme le plus heureux du monde". En mai débute la "lambing season", littéralement la "saison de l'agnelage". En mai, le livre de James paraîtra en France.
