A Breed Apart

In A Breed Apart, Adam Henson takes readers on a very personal journey around the nation, discovering the animals that have shaped our lives and our land throughout the centuries. From postcard perfect Highland Cows to the Cotswold sheep (for whom the Cotswolds are named), to the fearsome, four-horned Manx Loagthan ram and the Ulster White Pig, Adam travels the length and breadth of the British Isles, uncovering the history of these ancient animals, meeting the specialists and farmers who are passionate about their preservation, and shares his hopes for the future of these magnificent and unique breeds and his fight for their survival.

This is the story of Britain, told through the native breeds that have nourished and nurtured the nation.

Like Farmer, Like Son

Here, in this signed copy of Like Farmer, Like Son, Adam reveals the family traits and childhood experiences which have made him the man he is today.

Adam’s Farm – My life on the land

Life doesn’t get much better than this. I’m standing on one of the highest points of my farm on the top of the Cotswold hills, the first rays of spring sunshine bearing down on me. The field is empty save for half a dozen of my favourite sheep – the black-faced Norfolk Horn and the shaggy Cotswold Lion. At my feet is Maude, my top sheepdog and a constant companion for 11 years.

OK, so not every day is like this. The sun isn’t always shining and the work can break both your back and your heart, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. This place is in my blood and I’d be lost without it.

My name is Adam and this is my story.

A Famer and His Dog

Adam Henson explores the unique relationship between a farmer and his most loyal friend. Sheepdogs come in a variety of shapes and sizes from border collies to Australian kelpies (rumoured to be a distant relative of the dingo). Not only are they essential to the running of a farm, but they are also fiercely intelligent and exceptionally devoted companions, having evolved over millennia to make the make the work of a shepherd possible.
