Set of 2 Last Horseman & Shepherds Books

Inspirational and evocative, a contemporary journey into a bygone age of rural Britain, meeting the country characters who can remind us that we can still learn from our past. The Last Horsemen: a year at Sillywrea Farm in Northumberland, the last farm in the country where all the jobs requiring the strength and power usually provided by machinery are still done by horses. John Dodd's family have lived at Sillywrea farm for more than 150 years and horses have always been the source of power. The work is hard, but John, his son-in-law David Wise and their 5 huge Clydesdales run the farm to the rhythms of the seasons, allowing nature to lead the way. 16 black and white and 22 colour illustrations. The Last Shepherds: an engrossing and extraordinary record of a vanishing way of life on Britain's traditional hill farms. Following hill shepherds Dave Baxter, and Stewart and Gwen Wallace through the cycle of hill farming in the Cheviot Hills of Northumberland: lambing in spring, haymaking, shearing in the summer, then autumn lamb sales and winter feeding. 15 black and white and 12 colour illustrations.

Both hardbacks, 242-255 pages.
