Don't know where I came across this book, but I have to recommend it to all those sheep and fiber lovers out there. The book is called Sheepish: Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool to Save the Planet and is written by Catherine Friend. Here is the description of the book by Amazon.com:
What do you do when you love your farm . . . but it doesn’t love you?
After fifteen years of farming, Catherine Friend is tired. After all,
while shepherding is one of the oldest professions, it’s 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 it’s time to hang up her
shepherd’s 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
us—and the planet—would benefit from being very sheepish, indeed.
Written in short chapters, this book is laugh out loud funny and actually quite informative. If you are looking for some light reading about our favorite animal, check out this book.
