"This inspiring memoir os Icelandic sheep farmer, Heida Asgeirsdottir, has become an international bestseller, winning both the Icelandic Booksellers' Prize and Women's Literature Prize. Heida, is a solitary farmer with a flock of five hundred sheep in a wild area bordering Iceland's highlands. It's so remote it's known as the 'End of the World'. One of her nearest neighbors is Iceland's most notorious volcano, Katla, which has periodically driven away the inhabitants of Ljotarstadir ever since people first started farming there in the twelfth century. This is a very different shepherd's life, spent watchful of the dangers of earthquakes and glaciers, herding the last sheep back from the upper mountains slopes by quad bike before the deadly snows of winter descend. Heida walked away from a modeling career to take over her family farm, and this memoir explains why."--inside cover flap.
