Description

Learn More about the Book

Spurned by his wife and forsaken by his sons, Sammos Vixai, aging patriarch of a noble line of shepherds, is fast losing hisway. As he toils in wild lonely places, keeping no company but that of his animals, Sammos meditates on the ruin that has come of his hopes, and on the ineluctable modernity which is fast rendering his people and his traditions unrecognizable to him. And when an opportunity arises in the most unexpected of ways for Sammos to upheave his habits and to refashion his dissolving bonds with his family, he must decide if he will discard everything he has ever known for a world he has never tasted, far from the hills of his ancestors. Taking the reader on a journey across the Mediterranean island of Ipiphantur, through its untamed wilds and its ancient cities, amidst its people, its customs, and its poetry, Shepherd is a meditation on the tensions between tradition and modernity, heritage and ambition, nature and civilization, and the daunting, often bewildering choices that confront us all, in the face of that radical new world which even now is reweaving the fabric of our lives."
