Forlagsbeskrivelse af English Pastoral: An Inheritance af James Rebanks

The Sunday Times bestseller from the author of The Shepherd's Life! The Sunday Times Nature Book of the Year, winner of the Wainwright Prize, winner of the Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year, shortlisted for the Orwell Prize, shortlisted for the Ondaatje Prize, longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize. - As a boy, James Rebanks's grandfather taught him to work the land the old way. Their family farm in the Lake District hills was part of an ancient agricultural landscape: a patchwork of crops and meadows, of pastures grazed with livestock, and hedgerows teeming with wildlife. And yet, by the time James inherited the farm, it was barely recognisable. The men and women had vanished from the fields; the old stone barns had crumbled; the skies had emptied of birds and their wind-blown song. English Pastoral is the story of an inheritance: one that affects us all. It tells of how rural landscapes around the world were brought close to collapse, and the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things were lost. And yet this elegy from the northern fells is also a song of hope: of how, guided by the past, one farmer began to salvage a tiny corner of England that was now his, doing his best to restore the life that had vanished and to leave a legacy for the future. This is a book about what it means to have love and pride in a place, and how, against all the odds, it may still be possible to build a new pastoral: not a utopia, but somewhere decent for us all.
