A Shepherd's Watch Summary

A Shepherd's Watch: Through the Seasons with One Man and His Dogs by David Kennard

Charismatic David Kennard lives a life most people can only dream about. Farming on a spectacularly beautiful part of the Devon coast he has an almost telepathic bond with nature and with his working sheepdogs. His is a life filled with daily challenges, from the battles with wild Atlantic weather to the dramas of clifftop rescue, but it is also a life full of the richness of rebirth, and the Herriottesque delight in a rural way of life that has remained almost untouched by the modern world. Part diary, part homage to the countryside and the canine family that is so much a part of his life, David Kennard's extraordinary book is designed to touch the hearts and minds of city and country dwellers alike.

A Shepherd's Watch Reviews

'One minute he was a struggling sheep farmer, the next a runaway literary success' -- Guardian 20040405 'An honest and affectionate book about rural life, a Herriot-style homage to the countryside' -- Mail on Sunday 20040328 'Marvellously atmospheric, it is also a magnificent tribute to a laborious yet uncomplicated mode of life that has all but vanished' -- Good Book Guide 20040401 'Amid the countless novels of multicultural gangsta chic in kitten heels, A SHEPHERD'S WATCH serves as a reminder of a traditional way of life that is in decline, and of a deep-held reverence for the countryside and the seasons' -- Guardian 20040406
