Review: “Goat Song” by Brad Kessler
I just finished reading Brad Kessler’s new memoir, Goat Song. It is beautiful: part memoir, part history, part personal reflection. It chronicles the first few years of Kessler’s foray into raising goats in Vermont with his wife and the cheese that was the result. Lyrical, contemplative, mouthwatering, and enlightening, this book was an absolute treat to read. It touches all the senses: the smell of the meadow, the calling of the goats, the taste of the cheese, the mountain vistas, the feel of fresh curds over fingers. It touches the mind and the heart as well as Kessler explores our roots as herders and his own relationship to the world around him.
Overall, it’s a beautiful story!
