Overview

"Deciding that her spirituality needed to be grounded in the real world, Mary Rose O'Reilley, a Quaker with a Catholic past and a Buddhist future, embarked on a year of tending sheep, whom she called her 'two hundred spiritual teachers.' in this poetic, irreverent spiritual autobiography, O'Reilly takes the reader into a working barn, where she learns to 'flip' sheep, inoculate them, and help them lamb (among other, earthier things)." -Paul Lacey.
