Blackie and Blacktail is a story of two Exmoor lambs, one black, the other white with a black tail (who narrates). The two lambs experience a range of adventures as they wander the moor: befriend a stag, escape a flood, a snowdrift, a moorland fire and a rabid dog, are stolen by rustlers, and experience dipping and shearing. They get up to mischief and make mistakes, but survive through courage, friendship and endurance. This is as much a love story as a story of growing up and friendship. It is also an education in shepherding, told from the sheep’s perspective.

COLLECTED SHORT STORIES is a compendium of published and unpublished narratives written mostly in the 1930s and 1940s. They reflect a bygone era where some of the characters are the reflection of the author’s children and the business world where he once thrived.
