The Shearers and the Golden Fleece.



The Shearers and the Golden Fleece.

This book is about the experiences of a young student at an agricultural college in the Karoo who accompanies a team of sheep-shearers as part of his diploma in wool grading. The stories are heart-warming, amusing, sometimes tearful. He encounters farmers who are eccentric, weird, progressive and other-worldly. He bonds with his team, sharing the sometimes harsh working conditions.

He enhances his skills of wool-grading under the most challenging circumstances. And he learns some valuable lessons that will shape his future life. There is something reminiscent of Herman Charles Bosman in this writing.
