Herriot, now newly married, journeys among the remote hillside farms and
valley towns of the Yorkshire Dales, caring for their
inhabitants---both two- and four-legged. Throughout, Herriot's deep
compassion, humor, and love of life shine out as we laugh, cry, and
delight in his portraits of his many, varied animal patients and their
equally varied owners.
Jun 27, 2009Dogs, cows, horses, sheep, cats and more die, while others are saved, some miraculously so in this continuation of James Herriot's series based on his experiences as a vet in the Yorkshire Dales of Northern England.
Feb 03, 2018The second of Herriot's wonderful memoirs of his veterinary practice in mid-twentieth century Yorkshire. As with All Creatures Great and Small, his love for the place, the people, and the critters is palpable on every page. Recommended for everyone, especially animal lovers and Anglophiles. But be warned - some of the medical procedures are pretty gruesome.

Mar 12, 2007In fact it set me to thinking about the big question of how girls might be expected to behave after marriage. One old farmer giving me advice about choosing a wife once said; "Have a bloody good look at the mother first, lad. " and I am sure he had a point. But if I may throw in my own little word of counsel it would be to have a passing glance at how she acts towards her father.
Mar 24, 2008This series - of which I have now read the first two - is the most fun you can have reading books. They make you want to go to rural England, hole up in a cottage, drink tea and read some more James Herriot. I don't want these books to ever end. As an aside, this isn't a novel, rather its a collection of short stories, each one just the right length for before bed.
May 08, 2016What can I say? I simply love James Herriot. He was an absolute natural with story-telling. This book, just like his first, is heartwarming and puts the reader through an entire gamut of emotions.
Jun 03, 2019What a marvelous read. I'd forgotten how endearing the stories are told by the English countryside vet. Lots of rural humor and fascinating insights are offered about the farm animal and small pets world. I liked the bucolic descriptions of the small towns and rural countryside. I hope to return to continuing the series.
Sep 25, 2009The James Herriot books are a bright memory from a difficult time in my life. Struggle lightened by the laughter brought through these pages. Also some painful moments because life has it's painful moments and they can't be avoided. He told them just as he told the others. While I have read that the stories related here were not necessarily told in order or as they happened exactly, this is a wonderful book (these are wonderful books) not to be missed.
Jul 13, 2014“It was one of the most satisfying experiences of my working life. Not clever, but a magical transformation; from despair to hope, from death to life within minutes.”
Feb 07, 2017“Those were the days when I was most grateful I was in country practice; the shirt sleeve days when the bleak menace of the bald heights melted into friendliness, when I felt at one with all the airy life and growth about me and was glad that I had become what I never thought I would be, a doctor of farm animals.” – James Herriot
Oct 24, 2019This is the second lap of my five volume James Herriot marathon. I have read All Creatures Great And Small so many times I could probably recite it, but even though I have read all the other Herriot titles more than once, the last time for each one was years ago.
Nov 26, 2011Another of James Herriot's hilarious and heartwarming memoirs, this book is on sale starting today at Kindle for only $1.99. I highly, highly recommend the entire collection of his books. You will not be disappointed. Get a copy here.

Feb 17, 2018While the second of James Herriot's (or more to the point Alfred Wight's) semi-biographical veterniarian memoir omninbusses, while his All Things Bright and Beautiful (which contains the also singly released novels Let Sleeping Vets Lie and Vet in Harness) migh very well be considered a trife more episodic and anecdotal than All Creatures Great and Small (than the author's first omnibus), it is generally and for the most part as entertaining, as evocative and yes, as enlightening a reading While the second of James Herriot's (or more to the point Alfred Wight's) semi-biographical veterniarian memoir omninbusses, while his All Things Bright and Beautiful (which contains the also singly released novels Let Sleeping Vets Lie and Vet in Harness) migh very well be considered a trife more episodic and anecdotal than All Creatures Great and Small (than the author's first omnibus), it is generally and for the most part as entertaining, as evocative and yes, as enlightening a reading experience (although I guess that I would have indeed both liked and also appreciated a bit more information about Helen, about James Herriot's wife, than that she obviously tends to much spoil her new husband with comfort, with food, with always catering to both his needs and desires, even his eccentricities and peculiarities).
Jul 19, 2011Just about as hilarious as "All Creatures Great and Small," although I felt a rising panic every time Granville Bennett showed up. Towards the end of the book World War II arrives and Herriot, Tristan, and Siegfried have to enlist, so there were some moving chapters when James takes leave of the Dales. As with the first book, plenty of drinking (Granville Bennett!) and swearing (Siegfried!).
Nov 08, 2019There’s something so very soothing about these memoirs. Whether James Herriot’s appointments were with a difficult bull needing a nose ring or a favourite dog who’d injected rat poison, or cat hit by a car, there is a general sense of practicality, competence and compassion that permeates each interaction between James and his clients and patients.
Dec 26, 2008I always enjoy rereading James Herriot's memoirs of his experiences as a veterinarian in Yorkshire in the first half of the previous century. His tales of treating farm animals and household pets, and of the human characters he met along the way, are what I have to describe as "heart-warming". They're not saccharine, though, I promise. He's funny, too. Even though I've read his stories multiple times since middle school, I find myself laughing aloud.
Mar 24, 2016I first read this book 30 years ago, and I this week I listened to it in the car on a long road trip. These books are amazing and so funny. I spent half the drive going down the road laughing out loud in my car (and sometimes even tearing up a bit).
Sep 29, 2017The adventures of a young vet in charming Yorkshire during the 30s continue. Quaint, nostalgic and light-hearted, the perfect comfort read
May 01, 2011All Things Bright and Beautiful picks up where All Creatures Great and Small leaves off: with Jim's wedding to Helen. (I remember as a kid it confused the heck out of me that the books didn't go in the same order as the lines in the hymn did.) However, the book is not strictly chronological. One of the things that makes it such a leisurely, wonderful read is that the chapters are mostly self-contained.
Dec 20, 2012Gorgeous. A slightly more mature follow-up to "All Creatures Great and Small." In this collection, Herriott is married, gets drunk on the job, and cares for a variety of pets and farm animals. I'll listen to the other "sequels" but I'm in less of a hurry to do so than after the first of the series.
Jan 07, 2016A beautiful wonderful book. All the stories were my favorites and at the end of listening to this I was tempted to just start it over again.
