This fall will mark the publication of the complete, definitive edition with the addition of five of his best, more recent stories, as well as new art.

ALL of the James Herriot books should be required reading for everyone! I loved them all!
This one combines the most moving and hilarious stories of all his books. We read them aloud every evening and the whole family enjoyed them...great family books.
I loved reading about Dr. James Herriot's favorite memories throughout his life as a vet, and husband. He cares for creatures, and it shows in this memoir... Anyone who loves animals would love to read this book. It is some extensive reading but wonderful summer with lemonade, or rainy weekend curled up with some tea. My advice would be to find this book, and cherish it!
