Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Shepherdess: Notes from the Field, Ellison tells the story of her journey from research associate and mother to shepherdess. With humor directed mostly at herself, and a growing understanding of sheep behavior and health, Ellison deals with the thorny problems of what to do with too much manure, whether or not to eat your own sheep, and how to find self-respect in a farmyard." Shepherdess: Notes from the Field is funny and sad. You'll learn more about sheep than you ever imagined you'd want to know, and more about life than you knew before you opened the book.

Synopsis:

"Ellison's chapters flow sensitively — sometimes exuding a mother's common sense, sometimes McMurtry-esque pathos, sometimes gently pointed Bombeckish humor....It's thoroughly charming and easy to read, a terrific acquisition ..". — Booklist
