Overview

In the years after the publication of All Creatures Great and Small, James Herriot became the most beloved storyteller of our time. The warm and joyful memoirs of his life as a country vet in England's Yorkshire have endeared him to countless readers around the world. In addition to the succeeding volumes in that series-All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing-his writing has appeared in eight children's books and in the special illustrated volumes James Herriot's Yorkshire and The Best of James Herriot. James Herriot's Cat Stories, with more than a million copies in print, became his most popular hardcover ever. And, in this volume, the kindly animal doctor collects fifty of his tales about his very favorite animal-man's best friend.

Herriot tells us that even at an early age "I was fascinated by dogs...I could never quite take dogs for granted. Why were they so devoted to the human race? Why should they delight in our company and welcome us home in transports of joy? Why should their greatest pleasure lie in being with us in our homes and wherever we were?...As a vet I could be with dogs all the time, attending to them, curing their illnesses, saving their lives." And although-as James Herriot was soon to find out-being a vet in the Yorkshire Dales meant caring for cows, sheep, and horses, with precious little time left over for "small animal" practice, somehow dogs continued to play a large pare in both his personal and his professional life.

Here are the complete dog stories form the first four volumes of his memoirs: a handsome collection of tales (someavailable nowhere else in America) that will warm the hearts of dog lovers around the world. Featuring a special introduction by the author and his own accompanying notes to each story, and warmly illustrated by Victor Ambrus, this tribute from man to dog is a volume no Herriot fan will want to be without.

Many of James Herriot's best-loved tales are of man's best friends. Here is the complete collection of his stories about dogs and puppies, hounds and mutts--50 in all--including stories not available anywhere else.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This succinct, admiring biography views Harry Truman as a strong, decisive and much-underrated president. A British politician and author Asquith, Jenkins stresses Truman's accomplishments in the world arena, where the failed haberdasher achieved an ``even more difficult'' feat than his wartime predecessor, FDR, by becoming ``the leader of the free world at peace.'' After briefly recalling Truman's youth and early political career, Jenkins shows that he assumed the presidency ill-prepared, with only the ``courage of desperation,'' yet managed to begin the era of Pax Americana. The author's fresh views on such Truman achievements as the Marshall Plan and NATO are informed by Jenkins's own vantage as a British leader in the postwar period. Photos not seen by PW. June 4
Library Journal
Those awaiting the further adventures of Twicki Woo, the pampered Pekingese, may be disappointed to find only a postscript. Those seeking an excuse to reread selections from the author's popular book quartet ( All Creatures Great and Small , etc.) chronicling his Yorkshire veterinary experiences will be gratified to discover this collection of tales solely about dogs. The repackaging of these stories (some never published in the United States) has not lessened their charm or obscured the author's delightful insight into human and canine character. An optional purchase for limited-budget libraries, but most others should buy to meet the expected demand. Kimberly Megginson, VA Medical Ctr. Lib., Bedford, Mass.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 UpJames Herriot's Favorite Dog Stories is read very convincingly by Christopher Timothy, who starred as James Herriot is the BBC television series, All Creatures Great and Small. His British accent is precise and easy to understand. The stories are delightful and often reveal much more about the dog's owner than the dog itself. Since these short stories are presented in unabridged form, they lend themselves to use by reluctant readers as an interesting enticement into the literary world. There are many natural breaks. Those who enjoy Herriot's animal tales will enjoy this tape immensely.Pat Griffith, Schlow Library, State College, PA
From the Publisher

"[Herriot has the] ability to touch readers with his stories of pets and their eccentric owners and to bring them into the harshly beautiful world of the Yorkshire dales." --Chicago Tribune

"His message is affectionate, and his four-footed creatures are irresistible." --Time magazine

"Herriot's real gift lies in keeping us intrigued with his human and dog characters...Herriot teaches us how unpredictable and joyous life can be." --San Francisco Chronicle

"There is no finer teller of dog stories in the world than James Herriot." --Knickerbocker News

    DOG STORIES ARE TIMELESS

    These true stories happened decades ago and yet they are timeless and highly entertaining.

    Dogs and people are a winning combination for any story and Herriott has always had an amusing way of writing his short stories. These are excellent for light entertainment.

    A Dog Lovers Must Read

    Any one who has ever been trained by their shagy canine friend should read this book. Herriot brilliantly shows how he loves, adores, cares for, and is tamed by these fury fourleged bundeles of love. Some stories will bring tears to your eyes and others will make you fall of the couch with laughter but all of them are worth it.
