  • I met James when he did a book signing in our area a few years ago. He is amazing and yes I cried! His writing is beautiful.

    • I’ve never met James, but my Grandfather was a Spaniard Basque and he herded sheep the same way. It’s nice to still see it done the same. I remember the hand shears hanging on the shed wall. Thanks for bringing back my old memories.

  • I loved this book! I’m blessed to have an acquaintance who raises sheep in a small farm two counties away. She and her husband open the farm on Shearing Day which is a little like magic (even if skirting fleeces is the very definition of dirty work)

    • Great book! I bought it on Audible and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. Highly recommend!!!

  • That looks so peaceful.

  • Thank You! Just the way he touches his sheep brings tears to my eyes

  • James Rebanks is on Instagram. Lots and lots of current lambing photos.

    • Forgot to say he is on @herdyshepherd1. His wife is also on Instagram @theshepherdswife
