Mountain Born, the story of the boy Peter and his little black cosset who grew to be the leader of a flock of sheep, is a true pastoral, moving with the seasons and the lives of the creatures on a mountain farm. Sheep, shepherds and their ways have changed little since David herded on Judean hills, and they are as little different all over the world. There is a constancy to them that makes them something of a common denominator to civilization. The little boy in New England or England, Iceland or Brazil, who leads his father's sheep up to a mountain pasture and thinks long thoughts as he gazes across their fleecy backs into space, might be the Peter of MOUNTAIN BORN.
