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

Product Description

The war is over, the RAF uniform has been handed in and James Herriot goes back where he ought to be - at work in the dales around Darrowby. Much has changed, but the blunt-spoken Yorkshire folk and the host of four-legged patients are still the same. So is their vet, who doesn't yet know that literary success is just around the corner... 'After an evening among his tales, anyone with as much as a dog or a budgerigar will feel he should move to Darrowby at once' Yorkshire Post 'Wonderful tales... a joyous book, a celebration of life itself' Publishers Weekly
