Title: Het herdersleven
Author: James Rebanks
Language: Dutch
Execution: Paperback
288 pages

Some people choose their own way in life. James Rebanks does not. He is the eldest son of a shepherd, who is also the eldest son of a shepherd. His family has been living and working since time immemorial in the Northern Lake District. This piece of earth is best known for the romantic descriptions of the poet William Wordsworth and the illustrated children's books of Beatrix Potter. But the world of James is very different. His way of life follows the rhythm of the seasons and the work that they require. Nothing has changed in all those centuries: driving the sheep to the highlands and making hay in the summer; then visits to the autumn markets where the herds are replenished; heavy work in winter when the sheep must be kept alive and the drizzle of spring, when the lambs are born and the sheep return to the hills and valleys. James Rebanks introduces us to an ancient landscape and the dying way of life that has emphatically shaped this landscape over the centuries. The shepherd's life is a unique insight into everyday life in the English countryside, and shows Rebank's deep-rooted connection with his environment. A solidarity that is common to most people today. Shepherd's life is a story about a working life, about people who live on and persevere, even if the culture around them - that of the Lake District and farm life - changes. Many memoirs are about people who do their utmost to get away somewhere. This is the story of a man who does his utmost to stay somewhere
