The volume that completes the verse: All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.


The world's most beloved storyteller once again brings us the magical beauty of Yorkshire, the joys and sorrows of its inhabitants, and the richly rewarding experiences of a country veterinarian.


James and Helen now have two growing children, Jimmy and Rosie, who bring a new kind of adventure into James' life. The Herriots live at Skeldale House on the edge of the Yorkshire dales, whose peace, solitude, and feel of the wild make the countryside both thrilling and comforting at the same time.


It is the 1950s, a time of new advances in veterinary medicine, but the hard-working people of Yorkshire have not changed. That includes James' dear old friends Siegfried and Tristan - neither of whom has lost his great good humor. We also meet new friends, as James travels behind the Iron Curtain and learns about a world very different from his own. And always, his wonder, exhilaration, and affection glow in every word, whether he is talking about the glories of the moors and dales or the fascination of the people.

    " I recomand this book for all who likes animals, country life and life-affirmation. And of course who likes the english humour.:-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 2/14/2014

    " I liked this book a lot. I really like James Herriot's outlook on life - where he thoughtfully considers the world around him and sees the good in people and things. These are great books for kids and former kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 2/12/2014

    " I also love the humble humor of James Herriot "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 2/6/2014

    " Dr. Herriot is at it again with his stories of life as a veterinay surgeon. The stories of his travels are not as interesting or amusing as his life as a country vet, but all in all it was a good, light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hope | 2/2/2014

    " I read all the Herriot books when they first came out. Not great literature, but I remember them being warm and gentle and kind. Sort of steaming-mug-of-chamomile-tea-on-a-winter-night-type stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megankellie | 1/15/2014

    " Well, I love James Harriot anyway. A very kind, gentle and funny man who tells the open hearted truth about the weirdos he meets and stupid things he does. 100% delightful. I learned you can fight a bull with an artificial vagina, and there was a dog in Yorkshire who would go on a slide with the kids in the neighborhood. Also, I would like to be a vet in the English countryside, thank you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 1/8/2014

    " I love James Herriot, but I think I'm getting kind of burnt out right now... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aimee | 1/2/2014

    " This book was as good as the rest. I know that he works very hard, but he loves his work so much that it seems he lived a somewhat charmed life, or maybe it's just his humor and style of writing. Anyway, I can't believe the opportunities that came his way - he got to go to Russia and Istanbul! Wow! In this book he also writes about his son, Jimmy, and daughter, Rosie, going along on vet calls. Very sweet that they got to hang out with dad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaethe | 12/29/2013

    " I don't know the secret that makes these stories so beguiling, but I dearly loved them. "

    " Probably my least favorite of the series, but even not-so-great Herriot is an utter delight. I'm very sorry to be done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 7/11/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noel | 4/15/2012

    " i haven't read this but hes my alltime favorite author "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Crane | 12/24/2011

    " The first half, although James is entertaining as always, had some sad animal stories. But about halfway through it adds some extraordinary humor. It has been the type of book I cannot put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 11/24/2011

    " I listened to this on tape as a last minute loan to stay awake, and it was surprisingly entertaining. It's more a collection of short stories than a true novel. The accents were charming on the tape. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/5/2011

    " Lovely. Just as enjoyable as the first three in the series. Nothing can quite top the first book, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tristy | 7/9/2011

    " I agree with many others who say that out of the series, this is the weakest, but still an enjoyable read for big fans, like myself. "

    " If there was another book, I'd read that one too! "
