Sunday Times bestselling author Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside to become a full-time shepherdess with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat, a 2000 acre hill farm at the head of Swaledale, North Yorkshire, one of the highest and most remote places in England.
Amanda’s first book The Yorkshire Shepherdess, which was published in 2014, is a funny, heartwarming and inspiring account of her transformation from townie to rural sheep farmer. Her latest book Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, published last year, brings readers up-to-date with life on the farm. From tackling the long, brutal winter of 2018, to sharing a love of wild swimming with the children, life at Ravenseat is truly in tune with nature.
With three bestselling books, two hit TV series, 1000 sheep, nine ‘free range’ children, one husband and an assortment of farmyard animals, life for Amanda Owen, the Yorkshire Shepherdess, is anything but dull! With her trademark Yorkshire grit and good humour, this is a charming glimpse into a rural way of life unchanged for generations.
