Product Description

Review

'Bulls with sunstroke, pigs on the run and a cake-eating Peke with a betting habit, all set against the glorious backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales. I grew up reading James Herriot's book and I'm delighted that thirty years on they are still every bit as charming, heart-warming and laugh-out-loud funny as they were then.'
--Kate Humble

'I'm unashamedly plugging... These volumes are just so darn pleasant - even when James has his knuckles jammed up a cow's bottom. They are perfect summer reading... Herriot's adventures are as warm and woolly as the sheep he cares for.' --Sunday Mercury (Birmingham)

Well I may be showing my age by reviewing this James Herriot book, the second in the series, which I first read in 1978! But really these stories have stood the test of time and I hope new generations will continue to discover and love them. James Herriot writes about the animals and people he encounters in a compassionate and insightful way. The stripes are peppered with humour and then, of course thee is the wonderful description of the Yorkshire Dales.

I have been reading Herriot for my whole life I started with the little children's books and am now on the big ones and I still love them all so much, they make you laugh but at the same time make you realise how hard life was and still is for yorkshire farmers and vets.
