Overview

Life may be a highway for Tom Cochrane, but for Elizabeth Creith it's a rural road - down which she is probably chasing some escaped sheep. When she picked up an abandoned drop spindle in a house in Toronto, she had no idea where it would lead her.That "where" turned out to be a quarter-section of bush in the Canadian Shield, with dogs, cats, rabbits, goats and - oh, yes - sheep. Through the fencing, the lambing, the shearing and the inevitable little trip to the butcher, Elizabeth recounts, with love and humour, her life as a shepherd in the wilds of Northern Ontario. A listener and staff favourite in her post as "Shepherd in Residence" on CBC Radio's Richardson's Roundup, Elizabeth Creith has collected the letters she wrote for the show, and added many wonderful new ones.
