Shepherds of Britain Or Scenes from Shepherd Life Past and Present 1911
1911. What the author chiefly felt in the work for this book was the deep-lying humanity of its subject, which reveals in the shepherd of real life, as clearly as in the shepherd of legend and history, the essentially regal qualities of insight and of sympathy. Divided into topics entitled: shepherd and flock; rarer phases of sheep culture and character; the shepherd and his dog; sheep-marks and tallies; wool harvest; care of wool, labors of the loom; shepherds' garb; shepherds' arts, implements and crafts; shepherds' pastimes; pastoral folklore. Illustrated.
