More About the Author

JAMES HERRIOT grew up in Glasgow and qualified as a veterinary surgeon at Glasgow Veterinary College. Shortly afterwards, he took up a position as an assistant in a North Yorkshire practice where he remained, with the exception of his wartime service in the RAF, until his death in 1995.

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

Book Description

The seventh instalment in James Herriot's classic series of memoirs

Herriot brings his series to a close with more of the same (wonderful) stuff. Included in this volume are accounts of not one but two trips abroad with cargoes of pedigreed livestock. The volume ends with Siegfried's pronouncement, "James, there are great days ahead!"

Having read all Herriot's books I knew what to expect. A wonderful book based on real vetinery life at that time. I am now in the process of buying the other books available in the series from Amazon.

Not as pleasing as his earlier books. could have been written by someone else as the style is totally different. The whole thing is peppered with typos as if it has been translated from a foreign language. disappointing.

The humans are as interesting as the animals! Also, the structure of the book was really good: one chapter about what was happening on Mr Herriot's travels abroad and the next on vet experiences at home.I first read this book nearly 20 years ago, then lent it to a close friend and never had it reurned,so I bought a copy for next to nothing on Amazon.What value times over.I will read it again soon or maybe my other Herriot books, the kind of books you wish to not end and which you think about long afterwards...

Format: Paperback
Until the disappointing "Every Little Thing" appeared shortly before his death in 1995, this was the last book by Yorkshire vet to hit the bestseller lists, in 1981. With the assurance and style honed over his preceding novels, James Herriot takes us through some of the highlights of his post-war years, reflecting on new treatments and lifestyles gradually entering the hilly countryside of the Dales.It retains the narrative feel and flow of his earlier classic work and consequently provides a satisfying and fitting finale to his literary output. Siegfried and Tristan don't figure as largely as they did in earlier books, here the emphasis is really on the hilarious array of farming characters Herriot encounters, their reaction to and suspicion of new style veterinary treatments a recurring theme. As ever, they are rendered convincingly and with warmth. We also hear of Herriot's young family, his children accompanying him on his cases as soon as they are able to walk, it seems. With some classic anecdotes, a dry and generous humour, I must recommend this book to anyone who has ever found themselves chuckling to a Herriot story. Don't bother with "Every Little Thing" though...it's pretty mawkish and feels forced.

I read the James Herriot books many years ago, on seeing the titlex on kindle i started to reread them. They have not lost their savour as funny, easy reads yet which have acute observations of both people and animals. It was like meeting old friends. So good to just slipback to Darrowby and the description of the Yorkshire dales paints such a picture of rural life as it once was.

Another book by James Herriot that you just want to read over and over again, he explains his wonderful work as a vet,
in such detail, you almost feel as if your there with him. His everlasting love for all the animals in his care, and his love
for all the hard work he tells of in every chapter is a real pleasure to read
