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.
