Book Description

17 Jan 2013 James Herriot 5

The fifth volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small

During his decades spent as a country vet in Yorkshire, James Herriot has seen huge advances in medical science, technological leaps, and a world irrevocably changed by war. Yet some things have always stayed the same – gruff farmers, hypochondriac pet owners, and animals that never do quite what you expect them to. From a green young man in his first job in the 1930s, to an experienced veterinary surgeon, married with two children, James has spent his entire career among the people and animals of Darrowby. And there’s nowhere else he’d rather be.

Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, Every Living Thing is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.

Product Description

Review

"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

5.0 out of 5 stars J. Herriot's Every Living Thing 11 May 2014
By Tarzan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whoever loves Herriot stories will enjoy this book. It fills the gap of the later years and his travels outside Darrowby were fascinating, funny, and will touch a chord in the heart of anybody who travels outside his/her familiar surroundings. It is always refreshing to read an author who does not consider himself a "superman" in his profession, and writes about his bumblings with a great sense of humor.
I recommend this book to anybody and everybody.
5.0 out of 5 stars Always a good escape to a quieter time 6 Jan 2014

As his son said, his books are more about people than they are about animals, as such are touching, humorous and thoughtful.
