A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess [9781447295266]

(1 review) Write a Review

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, Reuben 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.

'She, like her life, is extraordinary' - Ben Fogle


AUTHOR: Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books, amongst others, to work in farming. After learning her craft as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she settled down as a farmer's wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat.

Happily married with nine children, she wouldn't change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is also the author of the top ten bestseller The Yorkshire Shepherdess and writes a weekly column in the Sunday Mirror about life on the farm. She has also appeared on ITV's The Dales and Countrywise.
