The book written by the researcher Vasile Todinca originated from an exhibition on the theme of shepherding he organised within the framework of Țării Crișurilor Museum with objects belonging to the Ethnography Section, and also on the basis of his field and archive research, which emphasized the extent of the manifestations related to this occupation in the past, their distinctiveness in every type of shepherding. By an interdisciplinary approach that considers the utility of the objects, their conservation state, representativeness and aesthetic values, their complex functions, the author tries to reconstitute the world of herding, raising some questions regarding the necessity of a scientific re-evaluation of this ancient occupation, of tackling the deep empirical studies again, of creating ethnographies using its new methods.
