James arrived in Dorset in 1980 and began a 20-year cycle of working through the seasons as a casual self employed agricultural labourer.  As a shepherd, night shepherd, sheep shearer, forester, cider maker and turkey plucker he saw Dorset through farm workers’ eyes.  Since then he has published a wide range of books, many of which focus on oral history.
