A Classic - All Creatures Great and Small

Title: All Creatures Great and Small
Author: James Herriot


This memoir (Book 1 of a number that Herriot penned before his death in 1995) tells the story of a young veterinarian working in Yorkshire, England, during the 1930’s. Both humorous and poignant, the animal life and death narratives are interspersed with up-close-and-personal tales of the unique humans who love these creatures, in addition to a travelogue of the Yorkshire Dales. You’ll be tempted to greet the next friend you meet with “Naow then, how ista?”
