Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This revised edition of Parker's 1983 title includes numerous updates on the many scientific breakthroughs in medicine, insemination methods, and even cloning. This remains "recommended for all but the most urban libraries" (LJ 9/1/83).

Review

The Sheep Book offers a template for both the beginner and the old hand. Mixing theoretical, technical and practical, Parker offers a buffet of tips for any sheep producer.”—Joel Salatin, author of You Can Farm


“Ron combines intelligent observations with a shrewd and delightful humor, and his practical experience shows through at every turn. Unlike so many textbooks, Ron's book is structured around the gentle cycle of a ewe's production year, which is elegantly logical and effective. Beginner and veteran shepherds alike will appreciate the many how-to-do-it descriptions in these chapters. The reading is always interesting, always clear, and this book would be an asset in any shepherd's library.”—Woody Lane, Ph.D., Livestock nutritionist


“The revised and updated The Sheep Book is what the literary critics would call a ‘must read’ for beginning shepherds. For that matter the lists of sources for supplies, of web sites, of organizations, of breed associations, and of publications will be worth the price of the book to experienced shepherds. Ron's insistence from his first days as a sheep farmer on raising sheep outside on grass with no heavy equipment put him ahead of the low-tech, sustainable ag movement. His scientific background and his ‘outside the box’ thinking make this a book of substance, significance, and originality without being the least bit pedantic.”—Guy Flora, Editor, The Shepherd
