Charismatic David Kennard lives a life most people can only dream about. Farming on a spectacularly beautiful part of the Devon coast he has an almost telepathic bond with nature and with his working sheepdogs. His is a life filled with daily challenges, from the battles with wild Atlantic weather to the dramas of clifftop rescue, but it is also a life full of the richness of rebirth, and the Herriotesque delight in a way of life that has remained almost untouched by the modern world.



Part diary, part homage to the countryside and the canine family that is so much a part of his life, David Kennard’s extraordinary book is designed to touch the hearts and minds of city and country dwellers alike.
