The author treats us to lyrical musings on a pastoral existence from the unsavory hormonal posturings of the billy goat to the sublime communication between a sweet milk goat and her keeper. He leads us on an important guided tour of an almost abandoned lifestyle, where a lovingly hand made cheese can be the equivalent of poetry or music and self knowledge is gained through a work cycle which connects us to beginnings as well as endings. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
