This comprehensive guide to raising and maintaining sheep has been in print since 1983, and reprinted with revisions and additions in 2001. Whether you have one new lamb or a huge flock, this is the book for shepherds of any age. It is a great, thorough yet undaunting reference. This is that book. Other books may be prettier to look at, but this is technical, practical, friendly and sometimes even humorous. An indispensable guide.
