Every day at Ravenseat, a remote Yorkshire hill farm, brings new adventures for shepherdess Amanda Owen, her husband Clive and their children. In her latest book Amanda describes how they live in tune with the age-old cycles of a farming year as they tend their sheep on some of the country's highest, bleakest moors.
Writing with her trademark warmth and humour, Amanda also reveals how nine-year-old Miles got his first flock, Rueben took up the flugelhorn and how she gave birth to a new baby girl. She is touched by the epic two-day journey of a ewe determined to find her lamb and gives a new home to an ageing neglected horse. Meanwhile, Clive is almost arrested on a midnight stakeout to catch a sheep-worrying dog and becomes the object of affection for a randy young bull.
Beautifully evoking the landscape of the Dales and the hardy folk who farm there, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess will delight everyone who has dreamed of living close to nature.
