Overview

This volume picks up where "All Creatures Great and Small left off: World War II has begun, and James has been inducted into the RAF. We see him at training camp and we go back with him to Yorkshire -- on real trips as he breaks away to see Helen, who is about to have a baby, and on trips of reverie as he recalls the Dales, the animals, and the Yorkshire people who have so enriched his life.
We meet old friends again -- his partner Siegfried, the zany Tristan, the bon vivant Granville Bennett -- and scores of new folk, each with a story to tell. James Herriot is back, and as one reviewer said of his work, "If ever you loved a fried, human or otherwise, these stories are for you."

This series leaves me speechless. Every word Herriot shares with the reader is a treat. One of the few audiobooks I will keep and reread (re-listen) to. And the reader is wonderful.

Heart warming stories to keep you smiling and laughing. Having lived around livestock, I can truly relate to many of his stories. I love this book.

This book is an excellent read! I would recommend it to all people who love animals. It made me tear up quite a few times, and made me laugh outloud on numerous occasions... I "read" audiobooks in my car on my way to work, and, believe it or not, I was actually looking forward to my 1hr commute while "reading" this book! One thing that bothered me a bit is the narrator's accent. Since English is not my native language, I had difficlties understanding him at times. However, I don't think it would pose any problem for native speakers.

A very heart warming book. Because of the heavy British/Irish accent, it wasn't until the second CD that I realized the author's talking about being a vet. I drive 2 hours to work daily and I was teary most of the way. It's a great reading for animal lovers.

I loved this story and especially the narrator. Christopher Timothy played James Herriott in the made for British TV episodes and it takes me back to my childhood to hear his voice reading the book. Fabulous story line and fabulously read. I have ordered the other 2 books in the series.
