"The attraction of Herriot's ever popular memoirs of a country vet...is their alternating highs and lows, humour and pathos, and gripping anecdotes about delivering lambs, grumpy farmers, hypochondriac pet-owners, stroppy cows and blunt Yorkshire characters. And, of course, there's a powerful nostalgia element in these stories about our green and pleasant land in the day before the ravages of ribbon development."--Daily Mail
"On original release in the 1970s, James Herriot's insights into the life of a working vet were so popular and enchanting to readers that the area of the Yorkshire Dales in which he practised became known as 'James Herriot country'."
--Yorkshire Ridings magazine
Continuing the story of the veterinary practice in Darrowby in the Yorkshire Dales, this book contains the familiar characters of James Herriot and his family, Siegfried Farnon and his brother Tristan as well as Mrs Pumphrey and Tricki Woo.
