In the late 1930s, during the period near the end of the Great Depression but before the world went to war, a young Scotsman graduates from veterinary school and looks for any job he can get. His search leads him to accepting a position as an associate at a small practice in the Yorkshire dales, where he will be responsible for healing both livestock and house pets. Although well-trained academically, he is woefully short of practical experience, something which the local farmers and his colleagues alike are only too happy to point out. Nevertheless, the young man perseveres and soon becomes a respected and indispensable part of the community. Along the way, he learns his craft by dealing with literally hundreds of animals—as well as their owners, in many cases—under conditions that range from harrowing to humorous. Above it all, though, he also finds himself enamored and deeply affected by the people, the landscape, and the rhythm of life in his newly adopted home.

All Creatures Great and Small is the memoir of James Herriot, the humble and thoughtful man who embarks on this heartwarming journey. (Incidentally, while it is a history, the book apparently is not a strictly verbatim account; for instance, James Herriot is the pen name for James “Alf” Wight, the man who actually wrote it about three decades later based on his experiences.) Over the course of 67 relatively short chapters, Herriot delivers tale after delightful tale of his work with the animals, his interactions with the local inhabitants, his budding friendships with his boss and his boss’ younger brother, his growing admiration for the natural world around him, and, most of all, his halting courtship of the woman who will become his wife. While each of these chapters often relates a distinct event, collectively they constitute a chronicle of the author’s life as he moves through the first few years of his new career.

It is hard to express just how utterly charming I found this entire volume to be. Herriot may well have been a gifted and empathetic veterinarian—and, by all indications, he certainly was—but he was just as clearly a remarkable writer. While his stories of treating animals (particularly the large ones: cows, horses, pigs, and sheep) were uniformly splendid, where the author’s prose really stood out for me was in his descriptions of the northern English countryside as the seasons changed from the harsh realities of late fall and winter to the life-affirming growth of spring and summer. Beyond that, Herriot had a real talent for capturing the essence of his human subjects in subtle ways, either through the words they spoke or the actions they took. He lived at a time and under circumstances that are rapidly receding from memory, but we are fortunate to have such a gentle and endearing tribute to remind us all of what took place. ( )

James Herriot is just starting out in veterinary medicine. He is green behind the ears as many of the local farmers like to remind him. James has the biggest heart and the kindest soul. He wants to do his very best and it shows.

Ok…I am behind. I have never read this book. So, when I saw it was a show on Masterpiece Theatre, I knew I must read it first. Luckily it was an audiobook at NetGalley.

I will say that this audiobook is very long. It is a good book and extremely unique but a little long.

There is so much in this memoir. I have laughed and cried and learned quite a bit. I enjoyed all the characters, as a matter of fact, I think some of them are people in my home town. This is a joyful and fun read. Also, the narrator, Nicholas Ralph, did a fantastic job. There could not have been a more perfect narrator for this memoir.

Need a good, down to earth listen…this is it!

I received this audiobook from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

This was just as captivating as the first (and second) time around. It was interesting to note the new TV adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small diverged more from the book version than I realized. ( )

Of course I read this long, long ago but with the new PBS series I had to see what I remembered and of course it was like reading it for the first time ---absolutely delightful. It is fun to see the similarities in the new TV version compared to the book.

This is an amusing story about a young veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. He describes his trials and successes in treating livestock and pets. Many of the stories are humorous and lighthearted. He describes his employer, Siegfried, and Siegfried’s brother Tristan, who were interesting characters. His courtship and marriage of Helen bring the story to conclusion. I enjoyed the stories and James seems like he has a nice person who cared about the animals he treated. The job sounds difficult and laborious, especially in the climate of northern England. I would recommend this book as light reading for amusement. ( )
