Among The Sheep
In Among the Sheep, award-winning artist, nature photographer, author and shepherd Marlene Bell shows readers how she utilized her artistic abilities while falling into the business of keeping sheep. With wit, style, and grace, over time this city girl turned farmhand entrepreneur learned how to run a lucrative sheep operation while balancing a mail order and Internet gifts business. In twelve chapters, she offers tips, guidance, and valuable professional advice with a warm, down-home feel. With chapter titles such as “A Surprise Gift,” “The Mail Order Queen,” and “Momentum” she shoots from the hip with her tales to provide the sheer (pun intended) wisdom of over thirty years with sheep and her related business ventures. More than anything, this guide shares a memoir of a woman who wears a number of hats. She exemplifies the idea of turning a love for animals into a lifetime commitment to caring for and celebrating them.
