In prose as sparse and rugged as the Lakeland fells, Rebanks takes us through the year of sheep farming in this idyllic corner of Britain. A memoir of the hardships of the farming life, it is also a moving testament to the value of tradition, rural community, and shared land over tourism and cultural urbanism.

I don't quite know exactly what this is but I'm in awe. Biography or Etsy shop? Scrapbook and photo album or feminist polemic? Either way RBG and her legions of admirers win my ardent admiration for her life work and their creativity.

The joys and benefits of the horse-human relationship have long been espoused, but here, natural horseman Hayes goes a step further into the scientific and clinical reasons behind the success of therapeutic horsemanship programs. Wounded Warriors, autistic youth, those who have suffered domestic abuse are some of those who have been emotionally transformed by relationships with horses. Fascinating reading which should turn any skeptic into a lifelong horse lover, I hope.
