Shepherds and their Dogs
Author, journalist and small-holder John Bezzant brings together a charming mixture of folk history and countryside tales in this heart-warming account of that remarkable working partnership: shepherds and their dogs.
He weaves in tales of their remarkable courage, devotion and endurance as these clever animals interact with their masters to achieve some unbelievable feats.
Bezzant covers the sheepdog at war, stories of some of the most famous sheepdogs in history, drovers and their dogs, some outstanding shepherds, how they train their dogs, bizarre shepherding incidents and the shepherds’ seasons.
The book is fully illustrated with evocative black and white photographs.
A touching, informative and anecdotal account.
