Reviews

I found this book not only pleasingly escapist but also nostalgic... the writing is vivid, lyrical and seductive... There's a romance to shepherding that is entirely absent from pig and poultry farming. * The Times *
The Sheep's Tale is an important book on several levels... Read a few sentences out loud, wherever you are; everyone should know more about sheep. -- Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows
A book of brilliant authenticity. Lewis-Stempel's affection for, and empathy with, sheep springs off every page. -- Sally Coulthard, author of A Short History of the World According to Sheep
John Lewis Stempel's paean of praise for our wonderful and unique breeds of British sheep ought to be widely read. Sheep and pastoral farming are coming under increasingly strident onslaught and they will need every ounce of support they can get if they are to survive into the future. -- Philip Walling, author of Counting Sheep
This little book is both delightful and useful. * Country Life *
An insider's account of the gentle art of shepherding.. . a paean to a lost era, when shepherds watched their flocks by night and regarded them with respectful understanding, rather than exploiting them as mere commodities... delivered with engaging wit... intelligently argued and full of surprising facts. * Herald *
[Lewis-Stempel is] a superb nature writer... Anyone who tells you that these creatures are stupid is pulling the wool over your eyes. * Saga *
A warm-hearted and deeply personal biography of ewes, rams and lambs... His affection for his flock shines through these shepherding tales. * The Countryman *
