These are the stories that catapulted James Herriot to literary fame. When this book was first published, it was a simple volume of memoirs by an unknown Scottish veterinarian. But within a year, the book became recognized as a masterpiece. And in the two and a half decades that followed, Dr. Herriot became one of the most universally loved authors of our time.

In this first volume of his memoirs, then-newly-qualified vet James Herriot arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and he has no idea what to expect. How will he get on with his new boss? The local farmers? And what will the animals think? This program is filled with hilarious and touching tales of the unpredictable Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother, Tristan, and Herriot's first encounters with a beautiful girl named Helen.

Now as then, All Creatures Great and Small is full of humor, warmth, pathos, drama, and James Herriot's love of life. His journey across the Yorkshire dales, and his encounters with humans and dogs, cows and kittens, are lovingly told by Christopher Timothy with all the fascination, affection and joy that suffuses Dr. Herriot's works.

    " I loved this book. The whole story was so positive. The author was so enamored with his life, his job, his surroundings and the characters, that you had to love it all too. I felt like I was there in the hills with him many times. I have no idea why I waited so long to read this book, but I enjoyed every page! "

    " I first read this in the Reader's Digest when I was stuck in a relative's home with nothing to read. I immediately loved it. The Yorkshire setting is beautifully described, the characters fully drawn and the animal stories very realistic. A wonderfully comforting book to read. "

    " This ranks as one of my favorite books :) Herriot's adventures in the countryside as he starts his veterinary practice are full of warmth, humor, compassion, & above all, his deep love for the animals & the clients he cares for. "
