"A classic of its kind...'miraculous' is not too strong a word!" -- Chicago Times Book World
."Warm, joyous, often hilarious... shines with love of life." -- The New York Times Book Review.About the Author:
James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing. At age 23, Herriot qualified for veterinary practice with the Glasgow Veterinary College, and moved to the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire to work in a rural practice. He would live in, work in, and write about the region for the rest of his life. Though he dreamed for years of writing a book, his veterinary work and his family kept him busy, and he did not start writing until the age of 50. In 1979, he was awarded the title Order of the British Empire (OBE). His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.
