What do you do when you love your farm . . . but it doesnt love you? After fifteen years of farming, Catherine Friend is tired. After all, while shepherding is one of the oldest professions, its not getting any easier. The number of sheep in America has fallen by 90 percent in the last ninety years. But just as Catherine thinks its time to hang up her shepherds crook, she discovers that sheep might be too valuable to give up. What ensues is a funny, thoughtful romp through the history of our woolly friends, why small farms are important, and how each one of usand the planetwould benefit from being very sheepish, indeed.
