Model Number: 9781529043280
The Classic Memoirs of a 1930s Vet. As seen on Channel 5 in the remake of ‘All Creatures Great and Small’
James Herriot’s 'All Creatures Great and Small’ series of books are brought together in his second two-in-one volume, containing the third and fourth books in the series:
‘Let Sleeping Vets Lie’ and ‘Vet in Harness’
Now settled into the sleepy Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and married to Helen the farmer’s daughter, James Herriot thinks he’s finally got himself sorted. But life as a vet in the 1930s was never going to be easy. Quite aside from his unpredictable colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, he must contend with new-fangled medical techniques, delivering calves after far too much home-made wine, and a grudge-holding dog called Magnus who never forgets. And then, with Britain on the verge of war, James faces a decision that could separate him from Darrowby – and Helen – for ever . . .
Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Bright and Beautiful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.
