Veterinarian James Herriot recalls life in England during World War II, when the great forces of the modern world came even to his sleepy Yorkshire hamlet
Only a couple of years after settling into his new home in northern England, James Herriot is called to war. In this series of poignant and humorous episodes, the great veterinarian shares his experiences training with the Royal Air Force, pining for a pregnant wife, and checking in on the people back home who made his practice so fascinating. As the young men of Yorkshire are sent into battle and farmers consider the broader world theyre a part of, Herriot reflects on the liveshuman and animal alikethat make his home worth fighting for.
James Herriot (19161995) was the pen name of James Alfred "Alf" Wight, an English veterinarian whose tales of veterinary practice and country life have delighted generations. Many of Herriots worksincluding All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thingbecame international bestsellers and have been adapted for film and television. Though largely fictional, Herriots stories rely on numerous autobiographical elements taken from his life in northern Englands Yorkshire County, and they depict a simple, rustic world deeply in touch with the cycles of nature.
