The #1 New York Timesbestselling author of All Creatures Great and Small reflects on the rewards of training the next generation of veterinarians.
As an aging James Herriot begins to see more house pets than livestock, the challenge of treating animalsand reassuring their ownersprovides plenty of excitement, mystery, and moments of sheer delight. After building up his own practice, the renowned country vet begins to teach a new generation about a business both old-fashioned and very modern. He watches with pride as his own children show a knack for medicine, and remarks on the talents and quirks of a string of assistants. There is no perfecting the craft, since people and their animals are all remarkably different, but Herriot proves that the best healers are also the most compassionate.
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.
