A middle-aged couple of escaped New Yorkers become shepherds in the rural outpost of West Marin, California, and learn much about life—and about death—from the experience. The Dogtown Chronicles is a memoir, a love story, and true animal tales featuring two Scottish Highland steer, Jacob sheep, San Clemente Island goats, llamas, a horse, and a dog; with cameo appearances by many other animals.
