In the tradition of WATERSHIP DOWN, ANIMAL FARM and THE CALL OF THE WILD, Gus Flory's THE SHEEPLE is an epic tale of adventure sure to capture the imagination of the young and not so young alike. THE SHEEPLE is about a sheep named Bucky who escapes from his flock - an allegory about life in our times, the choice between freedom versus safety, and truth versus the lies we're told.
Bucky is smarter than the average sheep. He is destined to become leader of his flock, which lives peacefully on the idyllic hills of California's Central Coast.
When Bucky learns an awful secret, he attempts to warn the flock of the true intentions of the shepherd and the dog who watch over them. But the sheep think and speak in simple sheepisms and are unable to accept or believe what he has to tell them.
One old ram, a black sheep, believes him. He tells young Bucky of a mythical ram named Zeus and his wild sheep who live in freedom on Liberty Mountain. The two sheep must decide whether to remain with the flock or escape. The decision is made and they set out into the wild in search of Zeus and his flock. A harrowing odyssey ensues.
