First Sentence
As I crawled into bed and put my arm around Helen it occurred to me, not for the first time, that there are few pleasures in this world to compare with snuggling up to a nice woman when you are half frozen. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing!!! 22 Aug 2005
By Clare
Format:Paperback
This book is a collection of short stories about the life and work of the vet James Herriot. These stories, which lead on from each other, are both about looking after farm animals in cold fields, and dealing with both pet animals and their owners in the surgery and in the owners homes.
All things bright and beautiful will either put you off ever wanting to be a vet or will make you want to be a vet. It glamourises being up in the middle of the night, standing in freezing cold fields and not being able to save people's pets. When this was first published there was a massive increase in the number of people applying to study at university to be vets.
It is a hugely funny book. You can not help but laugh at every small detail and you have great sympathy for Herriot in his struggles. His wit never fails, even when he recalls being squashed behind a bull.
All Creatures Great and Small is the title the book was published under in America. In England it was called Vet in Harness.
I would recomend this book to everyone even if they think that it is not their thing. I did not think I would like it and was supprised. It was very popular at one time and was made in to a TV series for a reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous and touching at the same time 8 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a nation of animal lovers you cant help to be touched by some of the stories in this book, which take you back to a bygone age of traditional Yorkshire Hill and Dale farming. There are stories too which are just downright funny, and give you a good belly laugh. All in all a good book by a man who clearly loved the work and area in which he found himself.
