Desert Island Discs

James Rebanks, shepherd and writer. James Rebanks is a shepherd and the best-selling author of The Shepherd's Life. Born in Cumbria in 1974, he grew up venerating his grandfather, who taught him what he needed to know in order to take over the family farm from his father one day. He found school an irksome distraction, and left aged 15 with two GCSEs. It wasn't until his early 20s, after he'd developed an interest in reading and had met his future wife Helen, that he decided to return to study at a local college in the evenings.
