SHEPHERDS OF THE FUTURE

Being a shepherd in the 21st century means deciding to belong and contribute to a world in flux. Beckoning us to probe deep into the oft neglected world of agriculture, the author overturns common preconceptions, and presents both the men and women who have chosen a profession deeply contemporaneous in its relation to major economic and human dilemmas.
