Hard- cover previous owners stamp inside, with dust-jacket, minor edge wear - 156 pages
AH & AW Reed, 1980 1st edn
ISBN: 0589013351

This is the story of how Frank Glen, the working clergyman, set himself up as a part-time cocky. Written in a colourful, rough-and-tumble style, it relates how the Glens' two-hectare property in the Myron Bush became the home of an assortment of sheep, ducks and the indomitable black ram, Charles Jesus Brown.

As a probation officer by day, and spare-time protector of his four-footed flock, Frank Glen's time was cut out. His new duties included fencing, shearing, gardening and acting as midwife to twenty-four stubborn and single-minded ewes.

The Glens' attempts at self-sufficiency provide many hilarious and un-parsonlike incidents: but, above all, this is a story of healing, hope and restoration. In his new role as Nature's temporary rural housekeeper, Frank Glen demonstrates the rewards of living and working close to the land in the unique Southland community.
