About this title


James Herriot, the modest Scotsman who wrote books that became worldwide bestsellers, two popular films, and a much-loved television show, died in 1995 at the age of seventy-eight. In this first full biography of the beloved veterinarian and author, Graham Lord pays tribute to this remarkable man whose calm and reserve remained unchanged by phenomenal success and adulation. in color.

From AudioFile:

It's difficult to perform the straight narrative of a biography entertainingly, but Paul Michael does a good job by changing his accents on the few occasions when non-Herriot characters are quoted. His overall intonation is properly regional, and anyone who enjoyed All Creatures Great and Small would probably enjoy this audiobook. The book focuses on distinguishing between the lives of the pseudonymous James Herriot and his creator, veterinarian Alf Wight. There were many similarities and some differences, as when Wight made embellishments to his own life for interviewers. It's especially interesting to see how the fictional characters stack up against their real-life counterparts. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
