Another James Herriot... light but fun reading. This one was mostly new to me, and I enjoyed it. I find these books uplifting and warm without being too sweet. Others, I know, feel differently, but I like them.

This one includes a few stories from trips Herriot took after the war. These glimpses of life beyond the Yorkshire dales were just as interesting to me as the animal stories for which he was justly famous.

If you haven't read this series and are in the mood for something pleasant without being challenging, they are recommended.

One of my favorite things about James Herriot's books is that each chapter is almost a stand alone short story. Although this could get confusing, he never forgets to clue his reader into what point of his life the chapter fits into. Each chapter is a delightful (if short) diorama illustrating his life as a country vet in Yorkshire, England.

I've known about James Herriot's books for years, but never got around to reading them. Then one day I happened to pick up his first book, "All Creatures Great and Small." I was completely hooked by the end of the first chapter. I look at the world a little differently after reading his books, and I can't pass by a cow or a horse (or even a dog) without smiling and remembering one of his stories. The last of his four book set, "The Lord God Made Them All," is a great example of why everyone should read James Herriot.

Very enjoyable and uplifting story about what wonderful things one person can do if they just try. This is one of a series of books about a country veterinarian who helps everyone in the district with birthing calves, to diseases and illnesses of farm animasls, and offers humor to weave into the story, so it plays out well. I would reccommend this to anyone, from children to adult.

A fitting climax to Herriot writing with such wit and humor and showing personal relationships in such a funny and happy way takes you to Darrowby and makes you know the farmers and animals personally. A really happy read.

This is the fourth book I have read by this author and I have loved them all. In this book, he describes the years as a veterinary surgeon after he served in the RAF in WWII. He now has two small children, his son Jimmy and little Rosie. He often took Jimmy around with him on his calls and then took Rosie when Jimmy started school. He also describes two trips he took (adventures, as he calls them). The first one was in 1961 as a veterinary attendant on a ship transporting sheep to Russia and the second one on a plane transporting cows to Istanbul.

James Herriot is one of my all-time favorite authors. Each chapter is a short story of its own but also ties together with the others in the book. Calorie-free comfort food for the brain!

I have read only two books that I have had to stop reading for a few minutes because I was laughing so much. This book, The Lord God Made Them All, is one of the books. This book is highly enjoyable. Just for the record, Midnight In Garden Of Good And Evil, was the the other book.

This is the last of the series of James Herriot books. It is the tales of a rural veterinarian (nothing religious, despite the title) and a very sweet set of memoirs from a man who cared very much about both people and animals.

Another great book in the series by James Herriot. This series chronicles his life as a country vet, starting in the 1930's. Of course he spends plenty of time describing his patients, but even as a non animal lover I thoroughly enjoyed these books because of his vivid descriptions of his colorful human characters, humorous anecdotes and general zest for life and for his job that abounds in this book as with the others.

Another warm and fuzzy (and sometimes tearjerking) collection from veterinarian Herriot. A must for animal lovers.

I haven't read this one, but it is in the same fashion as James Herriot's other books.
