Take an unforgettable journey through the English countryside and into the homes of its inhabitants, four-legged and otherwise, with the world’s best-loved animal doctor.

For over 25 years, since All Creatures Great and Small was first published, readers have delighted to the storytelling genius of James Herriot, the Yorkshire veterinarian whose fascinating vignettes brim with the wonder of life, animal and human.  Whether struggling mightily to position a calf for birthing, or comforting a lonely old man whose beloved dog and only companion has died, Herriot’s heartwarming and often hilarious stories of his first years as a country vet perfectly depict the wonderful relationship between man and animal, and they intimately portray a man whose humor, compassion , and love of life are truly inspiring.
