James Herriot lived and worked in North Yorkshire, England, for over fifty years, first and foremost as a vet, but in his later years as one of the world's most successful authors. Twenty years ago, the bestselling book, James Herriot's Yorkshire combined hundreds of color photos with a moving essay highlighting the places he loved so much - from the lush valley meadows in the springtime to the remote villages during the depths of winter. Now, two decades later, the Herriot estate has authorized the creation of a new book on Yorkshire that matches the original in both charm and grace. Complete with an introduction by James Herriot's son, Jim Wight, James Herriot's Yorkshire Revisited brings together never-before-seen photos with evocative excerpts from Herriot's eight major works.

James Herriot grew up in Scotland and moved to Yorkshire after attending Glasgow Veterinary College. He was a practicing veterinarian in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, from 1940 until shortly before his death in 1995. All of James Herriot's books have been international bestsellers, and were made into the immensely successful television series All Creatures Great and Small, as well as two-full length films. Despite his tremendous popularity, James Herriot remained an essentially private man and liked nothing more than to spend time with his family and dogs.

"The sun had broken through the clouds, bringing the green hillsides and the sparkling ridges of snow to vivid life, painting the rocky outcrops with gold. I wound down the window and breathed in the cold clean air drifting down, fresh and tangy from the moorland high above. A curlew cried, breaking the enveloping silence, and on the grassy bank by the roadside, I saw the first primroses of spring."
"In my daily work I was always aware of the beauty around me and had never lost the sense of wonder which had filled me when I had had my first sight of Yorkshire ... My eyes strayed again and again over the towering flanks of the fells, taking in the pattern of walled green fields won from the yellow moorland grass, and I gazed a the high tops with the thrill of excitement which always came down to me from that untrodden land."
