At Home in the Hills
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Based on several years of fieldwork at Teviothead in the Scottish borders, this is an anthropological account of hill sheep farmers' life and work, their sense of place, and their endeavours at 'making a life' in the face of increasing government and EEC interventions in both agricultural and social relations. Gray looks at three dimensions of the sheep farmers' lives: 'place-making' in family farms; farming activities of raising lambs; and keeping the farm in the family. No jacket.
