Product description

Hardback First Edition published in 1991 by the Sumach Press. Unclipped illustrated dust jacket slightly worn at extremities and creased. Blue cloth covered boards with gilt title on spine. Signed by author on title page. Spine slightly bumped top and bottom. slight wear to extremities of spine and covers. Inscribed on free endpaper. Pages lightly tanned. Tightly bound and clean with no further inscriptions.

An account of Janet White's life as a shepherd, islander, smallholder and hill farmer. Throughout her life she has always tended sheep - first as a young girl in The Cheviots, then on an uninhabited island off New Zealand with a bonfire as her only means of communication with the mainland. After a brutal attack she was forced to leave her island and returned to England, where she married, became a smallholder in Sussex and finally bought a hill farm in Somerset. Underpinning this account is the author's attachment to the land and her total commitment to
combine the principles of conservation with successful farming.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
