About the Author

After sixty lambings, one marriage and a big family, Janet White is now in her eighties and continues to farm in the West Country, zooming around the Quantocks on a quad bike.


One woman's gloriously lyrical account of life and love as a shepherdess * Mail on Sunday *
Janet White's unfailingly enjoyable book . . . taps into a widespread feeling that we have become cut off from the natural world . . . both an evocative picture of a life adapted to seasonal rhythms and an arresting account of the casual sexism White experienced -- Rebecca Foster * Times Literary Supplement *
Lovers of the countryside will enjoy this moving, quietly written account of a young woman's adventures as she made her way in the farming world . . . An immensely enjoyable and heartfelt book: it makes you want to run for the hills -- Rebecca Wallersteiner * The Lady *
A fascinating read that will move and inspire with every turn of the page * Countryside *
Intense insight -- Helen Brown * Daily Mail *
A hymn to country solitude, lyrical, unpretentious and deeply felt * Colin Thubron *
This is a strange and lovely book, and quiet as it is, it makes you gasp at the profoundly lived quality of the life it so modestly describes * Jenny Diski *
A book to share or even fight over if necessary * Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows *
An extraordinary memoir . . . The Sheep Stell is pure joy, one of the most moving books I've read in a long time * Philip Marsden, author of Rising Ground *
Utterly enchanting; a fascinating story, beautifully written * Penny Junor, author of The Duchess: The Untold Story *
Janet White's book should be compulsory reading * John Barrington, author of Red Sky at Night *
Janet writes delightfully of her unique life story and ultimately tranquil life on her West Country farm. But that idyllic lifestyle belies the steely determination that led her to the other side of the world and unforeseen drama, as she pursued her dream of shepherding * David Kennard, author of A Shepherd's Watch *
A beautifully written memoir of a quietly courageous life. My admiration for its author grew on every page: her strength of purpose, her resolve, and her clear, straightforward love of solitude, space and freedom that carried her - and carried me - around the world and back * Nick Hunt, author of Where the Wild Winds Are *
