Yorkshire is Herriot country--restless winds ruffling the heater on the lonely moors, rustic stone walls stretching across lush green dales, gentle sheep grazing near isolated farmhouses. All the cherished scenes and memorable characters of the wonderful Herriot books come to life as the world's most beloved veterinarian takes you it his favorite places. . .and in warm, loving, deeply enriching commentary, shares with you memories of his life with Helen, Fiegfried, Tristan and the special animals he has so tenderly cared for in this hauntingly beautiful corner of England.About the Author:
James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including All Creatures Great and Small, 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.
