Model Number: 9781447226062
The Classic Memoirs of a 1930s Vet and the inspiration for the ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ TV programmes.
James Herriot’s 'All Creatures Great and Small’ series of books are brought together in his third two-in-one volume, containing the fifth and sixth books in the series:
‘Vets Might Fly’ and ‘Vet in a Spin’
Training as an RAF pilot in the smoke and bustle of London is a far cry from James Herriot’s day job as a country vet in the Yorkshire Dales. And while he is keen to serve Queen and country, James cannot help but miss his life in Darrowby – despite frequent arguments between his colleagues, bad-tempered cattle and equally irritable farmers, and the continuing saga of Cedric the flatulent dog. But most of all he misses his wife Helen; pregnant with their first child. The question is constantly hanging over him – will he be going to war? And when will he get to go home?
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 Wise and Wonderful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.
