Overview

Twenty-five years ago, a volume of memoirs by an unknown Scottish veterinarian was first published--All Creatures Great and Smalll. Within a year, the book had become recognized as a masterpiece. It went on to sell millions of copies and began the marvelous series of books beloved of readers all over the world, which have so far sold over 20 million copies in English alone. Here, as a companion to the first two, are the third and fourth books in the series, published together for the first time. All Things Wise and Wonderful and The Lord God Made Them All continue the adventures of the beloved Yorkshire veterinarian from All Creatures Great and Small and All Things Bright and Beautiful: training in the midst of World War Two for the Royal Air Force, while going home to Yorkshire whenever possible to see his pregnant wife; visiting with old friends; returning from the R.A.F. after the war to battle the diseases and injuries that befall the farm animals and pets of Skeldale and the surrounding moors. Many new faces join the old favorites among the green hills of Yorkshire. Whether voyaging to Russia on a freighter full of sheep or attending to his own growing children, Herriot's heartwarming and often hilarious stories perfectly depict the fascinating relationship between man and animal. His wonderful stories make us laugh and cry, as we marvel at the everyday miracles he creates.

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
[The Lord God Made Them All]:

James Herriot is a pied piper with the written word. He eases his reader into loving, liking and laughing at familiar characters, animal and human.

Seattle Times
[All Things Wise and Wonderful]:

Warm, wonderful, and sometimes hilarious...this is a book the reader hates to finish because it is so enjoyable.

Business Week
[All Things Wise and Wonderful]:

The harmony between man and beast in this corner of England shines through every page.

Charlotte Observer
[The Lord God Made Them All]:

Some of the most excellent reading of our generation.

Cleveland Plain Dealer
[All Things Wise and Wonderful]:

A continuing feast...full of gusto, realism, eccentricity and joy. Joy is, I think, the key to Herriot. He takes joy in life as it is, makes every minute count.

Forth Worth Star-Telegram
[The Lord God Made Them All]:

A triumph in the art of storytelling, as delightful and refreshing to the mind's eye and heart as a field of bright-eyed daisies.

Washington Post
[All Things Wise and Wonderful]:

Some stories are funny, some are earthy, some dramatic and some touching to the point of tears.

    All of Herriot's books are top shelf! There is a true connection between this vet and his patients 'animals,' and although magical, it's believable. I love all of his books and more movies should be made from them!

    This is truly a book to show your emotions.

    This is a book that will bring out your emotions. It's a unique book about a country veteranarian and his miracles and mistakes that he makes during his career.
