Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 12, Wyna rated it really liked it. I'm no writer, so please bare with me on this. This was a very simply written book.
I actually remember hearing of Bill Stockton from my dad when i was in college trying to learn something about art. He mentioned Bill and his beautifully simple paintings and sketches.
That is why i bought this book the other day. But what struck me was his thoughts on animals and his duty to care for them.
This is more the norm that the reverse in the agricultural community. I wish every person in America could I'm no writer, so please bare with me on this. I wish every person in America could read this book and really absorb just what it is that the ranchers go through to bring food to the table He doesn't mince words and he doesn't sugarcoat the ugly stuff. He just lays it out in black and white.
But he also talks about the tender moments and the value of life. I bought it for the artwork, but recommend it for the literary content.
Not a humorous book like I thought. About the seasons and flow of sheep ranching.
Ends with a nod to the current decline of lamb production in the U. And does a good job lamenting the industrialization of a peasant group in the Pyrenees mountains of France of containment feeding of lambs rather than on the hillsides. I could only curse at all the animal 'factories' everywhere; not only at the ranchers and agri-businessmen who manages them, but especially at the effete Urbana who demanded them.
Yes, cheap food is a panacea - conversion is the answer - roughage converted to protein - that the conversion is to involve life is of no importance. Yes, dear levers of wildlife, protectors there of, and all the people with self-serving gaps in their ideals, the domestic animal was never wild and therefore deserve no freedom.
God, I would like to shove every urban head deep inside a slaughter house to hear the squeals, to see the fright, and to ease knee deep in the blood pool. The beauty of the sheep industry is that it has the ability to truly inhabit the grazing lands of the West on a large and productive scale.
Mobile, mountainous and effective, it is sad to see this pastoral industry decline. Oct 02, Suz rated it liked it. This book has some good information about raising sheep, interspersed among tales of the weather, development of prime ag lands, and more. They are numerous sketches of lambs and sheep, so good, some very rough.
Dec 31, Smokinjbc rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book- it is not for everyone, but it was mostly a philosophical read punctuated by stark drawings of sheep in various stages of life and sometimes death.
