The first son of a shepherd, James Rebanks and his family have lived and farmed in and around the Lake District for hundreds of years. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons - sending the sheep to the fells in the summer and making the hay, the autumn fairs where the flocks are replenished, the gruelling toil of winter when the sheep must be kept alive and to come full circle in spring with lambing and ready to send the sheep back to the fells.
James Rebanks takes us through a shepherd's year, offering an account of rural life, describing a way of life that is little noticed and yet has profoundly shaped this landscape.
