The Yorkshire Shepherdess by Amanda Owen
In an excellent condition. See photos for more details.
Amanda has been eagerly watched by millions of viewers of ITV’s The Dales living and working at Ravenseat, a hill farm of 2,000 acres which she shares with 900 sheep, seven children, four dogs and one husband. Not to mention chickens, pigs, cows, horses, an uncontrollable goat and a vole who has taken up residence in the sitting room.
It’s a far cry from her childhood in industrial Huddersfield …
In this delightful memoir she reveals how she achieved her dream of becoming a shepherdess and how she and husband Clive have dealt with the ups and downs of farming life – from the tragedy of foot and mouth disease to the joy of breeding a champion tup, and from the pleasures of living in tune with the changing seasons to the challenges of raising children in such a remote location.
Funny, heart-warming and packed with unforgettable characters – both human and animal – The Yorkshire Shepherdess will inspire you to look at the countryside and those who work there with new appreciation.
