Counting Sheep: A Celebration of the Pastoral Heritage of Britain

Hay Festival 2014, 

Sheep are the thread that runs through the history of the British countryside. Our fortunes were once founded on sheep, and this book tells a story of wool and money and history, of merchants and farmers and shepherds, of English yeomen and how they got their freedom and, above all, of the soil. He talks to Kitty Corrigan.
