Description

Considered a classic at the time of its publication in 1910, A Shepherd’s Life is a rare account of the lives of those who lived on and worked the land in nineteenth-century rural Britain. A masterful work of prose, W. H. Hudson focuses on the story of one man, a Wiltshire shepherd named Caleb Bawcombe, whose tales of sheep dogs, farmer’s wives, poachers and local fairs become a sublime account of a way of life that has largely disappeared from these shores.
