The stories of a young veterinarian making his way in the rugged English countryside—and of the people and animals he met along the way   In the rolling dales of Yorkshire, a simple, rural region of northern England, a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in a strange land, he must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike.   This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the author’s own experiences, became an international success, spawning sequels and winning over animal lovers everywhere. Perhaps better than any other writer, James Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives.

Just started, loving it so far.more
Some things don't age. I'm now keen to spend some time in the Dales though British and even Yorkshirean pals are most gruesome in their descriptions of blasted heath and bitter weather.more
I first read this when I was twelve, and I just reread it for the first time in at least ten years. It's still just as charming, heartwarming, and funny as it was when I first read it.more
Herriot's writing is really just about perfect for what it does. Alternately funny, sad, and touching, the people and the animals are described with the same loving amusement and all of the various adventures reach satisfying conclusions. Just the book for a cold winter day.more

Entertaining and at times hilarious 1930s memoirs of a Yorkshire country vet, fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College. Fantastic new covers for this series of classic works.more
This is an old favorite of mine: I'm not sure how many times I've read this delightful book since I acquired my first copy, about 1974, but every time I head back into the Yorkshire Dales, I am enthralled yet again.All Creatures Great and Small was written by a veterinarian, and is based upon his experiences in the Yorkshire Dales during the 1930s. The author had a way with words and situations that can make me grin and chuckle, or shake my head, or even, at times, can give me a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye!It's a treat for animal lovers, or just lovers of a good story.more
