Thousands flock to Twitter to follow a shepherd in Lake District
William Wordsworth's poem, "Michael", describes the Lake District, a small part of England's Northwest. And although those words were written more than two centuries ago... the Lake District Wordsworth describes, can still be glimpsed today.
Sheep and lambs still amble the hills and fields there... and so do some shepherds.
James Rebanks is one of of them. And he's written his own ode to the Lake District.. His book is titled, "The Shepherd's Life: Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape." James Rebanks was in our Toronto studio.
Have a look at some pictures from James Rebanks' Twitter feed.
Do you dream of being a shepherd and getting away from modern life?
