Item Description...
Out of the much-loved tradition of wisdom literature comes The Wisdom of Shepherds, a story full of astute observations and deep insight. Like all great wisdom literature, The Wisdom of Shepherds touches on the themes of self discipline, patience, understanding, and fulfillment. Like all great stories, The Wisdom of Shepherds will keep you guessing until the end.

One December evening when Old Caleb the Shepherd returned to the crumbling little shack in which he camped during the winter months for protection from the cold, he saw a Candle glowing in one of its windows, and inside, he heard a mysterious voice singing a mysterious song. The shepherd feared that the singer had unearthed the object he had buried beneath the cottage's chimney when he was a young man. The idea unsettled him.

He knocked on his cottage's door, and a woman with red hair opened it. He had never seen her, and he did not know who she was, but strangely enough she knew who he was.

So begins The Wisdom of Shepherds, a story so full of suspense, mystery, romance, adventure, and good humor that you will find it nearly impossible to wrench your attention away from its pages once you start reading.

A refreshing story  Aug 10, 2007
This story was very refreshing and uplifting. I could not put it down and stayed up late a few nights to complete it. I will probably read it again sometime in the future.
Just Wonderful!  Oct 11, 2006
Wow! What can I say? I love this book. If you only read one Rhett Ellis book, this should be the one. The story is about Old Caleb, the shepherd who wanders around the countryside. Each years he camps out in a little cottage, a squatter's shack, where he has a secret buried object. One year a woman and her little daughter move into it, and when Caleb returns, his solitary life is thrown into chaos. Will they be able to resolve the situation? Will the lessons he learned while shepherding be useful in the situation? And what about that secret buried object? What is it, and what impact will it have if he digs it up? This is a great story, the kind you'll remember forever. I couldn't stop reading once I started.
Great-- A Classic  Mar 11, 2006
The Wisdom of Shepherds is an all time favorite of mine. It is a story from the genre of wisdom literature that is tender and profound, rugged and beautiful. One winter evening, old Caleb returns to the cottage where he camps each year to discover that a young woman has moved into it. She is poor and she has a poor little daughter. He would send them away, but he cannot put them out in the cold-- and in the times he lived, he cannot stay with them. They butt heads, but in time a friendship forms.

This is a refreshing book-- there is no sex or cheap violence. The characters are incredibly real and you feel that you get to know each one like a member of your family. This is an amazing story!
Excellent  Nov 24, 2005
This book is wonderful-- gave me some of the best feelings I've ever had. You fall in love with the old shepherd and his crew at the outset, and the story completely hooks you in. I found myself laughing and at times crying out loud. It is about and old white haired shepher who wanders on the hills. Each December he returns to his cottage-- which is just a crumbling old shack-- for shelter from the cold. One year he returns and finds a young woman and her daughter living there-- a poor woman. This is a great annoyance, but over time, something beautiful develops-- but not what you would expect. This is a great book.
Truly LOVED!  Mar 31, 2005
The Wisdom of Shepherds is the absolute best book from the category of wisdom-lit. I'm a big fan of the genre.

It is the story of a wandering shepherd, the stranger who moved into his cottage, and how friendhip grew. The stranger is a young woman with bright red hair and a hot temper to match. She has a little daughter, and they are quite poor. That's why they moved into the shepherd's "cottage," which is really just a crumbling old shack in the middle of nowhere. He isn't happy about the intrusion, but he can't bring himself to force them out. In time, they overcome their differences, and a warm friendship follows.

Also, there's a big mystery about something buried beneath the cottage, something from the Shepherd's distant past that haunts his life yet could be the answer to many of his problems.

This is just a great story. I loved it. I was glad I read it.
