      I recently paid a nostalgic return journey to fictional Darrowby in Yorkshire, England, to read the warm, affectionate, earthy, hilarious memoirs of Dr James Herriot, veterinary surgeon circa mid 1930s 1970s I couldn t put them down, nor could I read anything else until I d consumed the entire series Love his courtship with Helen, his partnership with Sigfried and Tristan, his convivial embrace of his warped fellowman, and his service to hairy critters everywhere Must add I m also fond of his re [...]

      This is a beatuiful edition of two books I recently bought it because my original books have fallen to pieces from multiple readings over the years I am cutting and pasting my original review.This is an old favorite that I ve read countless times What do I like about it Let me count the ways.First of all, I like the way Herriot or Alf Wight, if you like turns a phrase His use of absurd imagery to create a comical effect is superb I found myself re reading certain paragraphs just because I enjoye [...]

      The first scene caught my attention right off He s saying, they never tell you about this in school, then he describes the scene he s in its a dark, winter night, he s got his arm inside of a cow up to the elbow trying to maneuver the calf inside her He s stripped to the waist, lying on the ground as the cow is and the only light is the lamp that the farmer is holding That got my attention This entire book is of one who lucks out and lands a great job and then discovers that he loves his job and [...]

      I read the series as a teen, watched the PBS series whenever it ran and mourned when Herriot died I even named one of my sons Tristan in part because I loved that character so much Herriot s an insightful observer of human nature and the perfect foil for the eccentrics in his rural community His career coincided with all manner of scientific advances that competed with folk remedies and superstition in the minds of the people.I ve spent a small fortune on my dogs and cats so it s interesting to [...]

      Every few years I read these stories again and I always enjoy them as much as I did the first time James Herriot Alf White enpedia wiki James_He such an interesting window into a unique time and place I have always wondered if he was a naturally gifted writer or if he had a really good editor Either way, these stories are so well written that I enjoyed them although I would not say I am an animal lover I am an animal respecter, and I certainly believe we have responsibilities to be conscientious [...]

    6. Mmoore on said:

      I loved this series of books When I first read them in high school I wanted to move to Scotland and become a country veterinarian I reread them again summer, and fell in love with them all over again When James Herriot talks about how much he loves his job, driving around the country lanes with the windows down on a beautiful day, or taking his lunch breaks lying on his back in the grass staring up at the clouds in the sky, you wonder how you can stand another day of working in an office buildin [...]

      It was great to settle in with an old friend I read this series over over in my childhood years, up through high school James Herriot is why I wanted to be a vet until I came up against chemistry, that is I LOVELOVELOVE this entire series His warmth, intuitive descriptions of his animal patients and their humans, and genuine delight of life are a wonderful gift to the world I m reviewing all the books in this series the same way, so you only have to read this review once

    8. Dianne Happel DiFrisco on said:

      James Herriot Dr White is on my top ten list of authors I had no interest in cow farming or in Yorkshire England, but he took me there as an arm chair traveler Then I actually traveled there, saw the surgery, Skeldale house, funky blue car, fields, cows and sheep their descents What a thrill

    9. Emily Becker on said:

      I often tell myself not to give a book 5 stars because, well, I know I can be a little too exuberant at times Not this time Mr Herriot s writing skills are only matched by his skills as a vet, which is blatantly obvious in this delightful collection of tales This book is tear jerking from laughter and sentiment, and an impeccable balance of all the features found in the very best of memoirs They are set in a time and place I have never experienced and yet I can practically smell the rolling hill [...]

    10. Patience on said:

      I am not an animal person Our family has a cat because my kids paid me 100 Actually, I am a little surprised with myself that I actually read a book about a vet in the 1930s in England After reading Mr Herriot s All Creatures Great and Small , I still don t like animals But, I do like Mr Herriot I like his patient relationship with his employer I like his appreciation of the beauty around him I like his candor and frankness is his writing I like that he has weaknesses and strengths that I could [...]

    11. Fran on said:

      I LOVE HERRIOT S STORIES I read all 4 of these books including Wise and Wonderful and The Lord God Made Them All Herriot s accounts of being a country vet in the 1940s are earthy and fascinating I remember a scene where a sheep is trying to give birth to twins and Herriot has his sleeve rolled up and his arm inside the sheep trying to separate the tangled legs and bodies to bring the lambs into the world, alive powerful stuff Many of the cat and dog stories are hysterically funny and the vet ass [...]

    12. Janet on said:

      I love all of James Herriot s books They are some of my all time favorites that I read again and again Herriot is one of the few authors that makes me laugh out loud I can pick up one of his books and open it to any page and just start reading for the sheer enjoyment of his writing style Highly recommended for anyone and everyone, especially anglophiles, animal lovers, and people who value rural pastoral settings and the simple life.

    13. Genevieve's Human on said:

      This is one of those books that feels happy to read I wouldn t say that the plot or the protagonist the reminiscences or the author, depending on how fictionalized you view the stories are unmitigatedly happy, but every time I picked it up, it made me feel better about the world Such books are few and far between, and I treasure them.

    14. Kelsey Hoppman on said:

      I really enjoyed the clever, very well written stories in these two volumes Had me laughing out loud at parts Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of language speckled throughout the stories, so readers beware Overall though, a very engaging read.

    15. Grete Kalda on said:

      An amazing book, brought a smile to my face every time I picked it up A heartwarming book

    16. T. Giachetti on said:

      Best read when you need a break from the horrors of life in the city Follow along with country vet and experience humor, empathy , compassion, and mostly thankfulness d

    17. Helen on said:

      I really enjoyed the author s lyrical style His stories are charming, strung together like pearls on a string very sweet

    18. Conchita Matson on said:

      I will read anything by James Herriot over and over Wonderful stories that transport you to a time forgotten which you wish you had lived in

    19. Sandra on said:

      I m a little late to the table with this one and I actually owned several of his books at one time You see I had wanted to become a veterinarian at one time It was my lifelong dream from the time I was little I always knew what I was supposed to do with my lifebut it didn t happen Something always got in the way as if the fates were opposed to it So, the books were gifts but I didn t want to read about the career of someone who was doing what I had dreamt of all my life After years and 3 attempt [...]

    20. Tara on said:

      Really fun It makes me want to be a vet all over again, as if I were seven years old again But it s so interesting to hear about the animal case studies and how he solved the malady, etcPlus he paints such delightful pictures of the human clients he meets The only thing that keeps this from being great literature is that the messages behind each little vignette are repeated I wonder if he originally wrote them as installments in a newspaper as a columnist

    21. Ann-maree on said:

      Twenty five years ago, a volume of memiors by an unknown Scottish veterinarian was first published All Creatures Great and Small Within a year, the book had become recognized as a masterpiece The pages are full of humour, warmth, pathos, drama and James Herriot s unique and richly justified love of life as he journeys across the Yorkshire dales With his passion and love for his fellow creatures Makes this book a must read.

    22. Mary on said:

      This is a great bedside book Each chapter is a separate story so you can read a little and not feel compelled to finish the book in one sitting to find out how it ends It s a pretty simple, wholesome book with some nice humor I ve read the whole series and I reread it now when I can t sleep It sets my mind back on a good track and it s still enjoyable after multiple readings, but I can usually put it down and get back to sleep in 15 minutes.

    23. Sean Chambers ray on said:

      I read some of these books in braille and some of these books on cassette I just love animal books and it was really need to hear the stories of a veterinary practice and how he handled each of his clients and patients I wish vets would be like that today, but instead a lot of them are in it for the money only We needed James Harriet to be in the present, that s for sure It seemed like there were a lot of good adventures, and he made all of the characters come to life.

    24. Bailey Jane on said:

      I read this book last year and thought it was really entertaining, but sometimes a little too long and drawn out I would like to read it again now that I m living on an island and not in downtown St Louis Maybe I d appreciate a laid back novel The main character is affable, relatable, humorous, and his veterinary adventures are definitely worth reading This is a great book to read any time of the year The descriptions of nature will be appreciated by anyone in any climate.

    25. Beth on said:

      This, and the rest of the Herriot series, passes the ultimate test books I have turned to again and again during the blackest days of beloved friends or family members death Short stories for a stressed out short attention span sweetness but not sickeningly so And laugh out loud funny even in the worst pits of loneliness and loss Thank you, James Herriot.

    26. Caroline Christoff on said:

      Very interesting memoir Being an animal lover, I personally thought his journeys were cool Even I you don t care for animals too much you d be enticed by his journeys.He travels around England dealing with constant cases, often having to wake up in the middle of the night to deal with a farmers cow or a womens little pekinese wonderful

    27. Kate Baldwin on said:

      I cant believe how much I enjoy James Herriot s books Insightful, heart warming and occasionally even heart wrenching , these books not only give a wonderful glimpse into the life of a country vet but a glimpse into the soul of an amazing man who loves animals, loves people and can laugh at himself and life.
