The Shepherd’s Life, James Rebanks
10.30am, Saturday 31st October
A Tale of the Lake District
James Rebanks’ family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons as it has been for hundreds of years. A Viking would understand the work they do: 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 and the light-headedness that comes with spring, as the lambs are born and the sheep get ready to return to the fells. New York Times best seller.
