Meet James Rebanks on his first USA tour to coincide with the paperback release of the bestselling A SHEPHERD'S LIFE and the release of THE SHEPHERD’S VIEW: Modern Photographs From An Ancient Landscape.
In the span of a few short years, James Rebanks went from unknown rural shepherd to international phenomenon. First with his popular Twitter account - @herdyshepherd1 - and then with his critically acclaimed, and New York Times bestselling, memoir The Shepherd’s Life, James brought a lifestyle kept alive by a few hundred farming families in the Lake District of England to readers around the globe. The Associated Press noted Rebanks’ rising star, writing: “James Rebanks is probably the world’s most famous shepherd…Readers around the world have flocked to Rebanks' dispatches from a way of life that has — against the odds — survived industrialization, globalization and mass tourism.”
Now using his camera lens and nimble prose, Rebanks invites readers to step onto the land where his family has worked as shepherds for generations in his visually stunning new book.
James still runs his family-owned farm in northern England. A graduate of Oxford University, James also works as an expert advisor to UNESCO on sustainable tourism.
