James Herriot's love for animals shines through in these feel good stories of his life as a country vet in England. From taking care of kittens and puppies all the way up through large farm animals, Mr. Herriot always has an interesting anecdote and lesson it impart. His entire series are a pleasure to read.

I loved it when I read it many years ago - my daughter "had" to read it for school and didn't like it.

A wonderful book, with funny stories, heartwrenching stories, stories to make you think. But above all, a story about love of profession, land, and people. Love this book!

I bought this book to give to a friend and decided to reread my own copy. I like fact that although there is an overall story of the book, each chapter usually contains a story of its own that begins and concludes within that chapter. This book and its sequels are not for the faint-hearted relating to medical procedures with animals, but they are well-written, educational, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
