Life on a small sheep ranch/vineyard outside of Yamhill, Oregon is not for everyone but the author's essays convey her deep love for the quiet lifestyle and her joy in the little things. I wouldn't want to stick my hand inside a ewe to help her deliver a breech lamb in the middle of the night but I certainly enjoyed Barbara Drake's humorous take on it :) Her descriptions of savoring their homegrown wines while taking in the sunset over the Coast Range on summer evenings ALMOST made me want to em [...]

I had the great fortune to have the author as one of my professors in college. I was fortunate not only because she was an excellent teacher, but because I otherwise might not have encountered this book. I read it once, years ago, and found it on my shelves again this Spring. It is a wonderful memoir and I encourage anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the successes and travails of the beginning farmer to pick it up.

This book was a gift from my sister, who knows that I hope to settle in the Willamette Valley with a large garden in the near future. It was perfect for a person like me, inspiring and contented. I'd highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a slow pastoral tale (or in this case, collection of short stories). Although, in the end, it made it clear to me that I don't want to own sheep!

Quiet and enjoyable story vignettes about life on a sheep farm in Oregon. Nothing flashy or terribly deep, but snippets of a peaceful and interesting life. As with all books like this, makes me want to pitch it all and go be a farmer."The warm light beckons from the barn on the hill. Being in it, with it. This is happiness. There is beauty everywhere and for the moment I am part of it."

Lots of sheep stories; sheep dog stories; stuff like that, oh yeah and vineyard stories too. This book came out in 1998. I'm looking forward to her new memoir that just came out Nov. 3. Got a hold at the library.

Fantastic account of life and living in the Oregon country-side. Wonderful reflections.

It's not James Herriot, not as sappy you might say. It gives some concrete details to living a rural life in Oregon, a state to which I am somewhat attached. I appreciate her sense of humor.
