A Breed Apart : My Adventures with Britain's Rare Breeds Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Discover a forgotten British heritage. The protection and promotion of the UK's native rare breeds is something that's in Adam Henson's blood.

His father, Joe, established the Rare Breeds Trust in 1973, and they have been a core attraction at their Cotswold Farm Park, and a part of the Henson family story ever since.

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.
