Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for James Herriot:

"James Herriot found a gentle, wise and often humorous way to write about animals and to evoke a beautiful but fading way of life in those Yorkshire Hills...I can't say that I have ever quite matched the writing...but he has always inspired me and given me something to aim for."—Jon Katz, NYT bestselling author of Second Chance Dog

"I recall reading All Creatures Great and Small many years ago, while working as a veterinary technician...Herriot to me remains a superhero of sorts, who...taught me how simple, heartwarming prose about people and their animals could...become art."—Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill
