Book Description

John Frazier was born to be a farmer.
Most of his life included sheep and tractors, but there were other tales too. A lot of them funny, most of them factual, some of them even accurate.
Sometimes there was drink involved.

From part-time war soldier to international sheep judge, each chapter brings his antics to life, with humour and emotion. the book contains some quite rare pictures too.

Follow the life of a man who pioneered farming techniques all his life.
Sadly John passed away on July 3rd 2013, aged 88.

More About the Author

Andy Frazier is an author of children's stories. Occasionally he writes things for grown ups too but he finds this quite hard as he has never quite grown up himself. He has always wanted to write ever since he was a child and now he can't think of anything he would rather do. He gets his most enjoyment out of creating colourful characters and then bringing them to life in humorous situations.
History

Born into a life of farming, it took a long time and a lot of determination to get away from it, but he thinks he has just about achieved that now. Andy did quite a few things during his career, including agricultural contracting, retail sales, sheep breeding and IT before he somehow became a business analyst working in a city. Oh yes, and at one time he was an expert in grooming cows. It all made sense at the time.

One day, he had a eureka moment and upped sticks to South West France. He now lives there on a smallholding where he shares his time equally between his partner, some more sheep, some DIY tools and a set of golf clubs. Despite all the obvious distractions that renovating a big old farmhouse presents, Andy spends most of his mornings writing and that is the bit he enjoys most.
