Genre: Non-Fiction
Published: January 1970
206 pages
About the Book:

When the newly qualified vet, James Herriot, arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, he has no idea of the new friends he will meet or adventures that lie ahead. From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small , this first volume of unforgettable memoirs chronicles James Herriot’s first years as a country vet, with the signature storytelling magic that has made him a favourite the world over. Here is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic of wild places and beautiful countryside.


My Rating & Thoughts:    

Real life recollections from James Herriot of his first year as a vet. Because I have fond memories of watching the show, I was constantly picturing the actors as I read. There are some funny stories and some graphic details. I found some parts boring and struggled to picture what was being described however there were also parts that made me laugh.

(I received this book as a gift; opinions expressed 
in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
