    MOBI James Rebanks ì English Pastoral PDF/EPUB ´ ì english free, pastoral download, English Pastoral EpubThis book is by turns romantic rough aspirational historic and prophetic in that if we don't look after the land it isn't going to be able to look after us He his family neighbours and other countrymen and women shine through as they go about the life they've been given making the best of what there isFrom realising that he is now 'The Farmer' to the magical moments at the end with his daughter this is a story of a man who has been shown both sides of the agricultural coin but knows that only one side is a winner I've done one or two of the jobs but only as holiday work and can't imagine how tough life on the fells at the end and beginning of the year can be but the shepherd makes it work with his words Explaining how the land is being put back to almost his grandad's standard how his legacy will be family who feel the same way as he doesIt took me a

    MOBI James Rebanks ì English Pastoral PDF/EPUB ´ ì english free, pastoral download, English Pastoral EpubWhile the uality of the writing is as good as the first book the subject matter is much important and in parts disturbing James spells out how our lust for cheap food and the fact that farmers are at the mercy of the big food corporations and supermarkets impacts our environment The fact that James writes from a position of having lived virtually all his life as his father and grandfather did in probably the hardest type of farming makes him uniuely ualified to write on the subject of farming and sustainability Sadly the people who take the high level decisions do not have this hard won knowledge We have to strike a balance between feeding everyone and not wrecking our environment this book is a very valuable contributor
