All Creatures Great and Small Book Summary

Short-Summary:

From a Yorkshire veterinarian and a “wise and wonderful writer”: The New York Times bestseller and basis for the beloved BBC series of the same name (The Boston Globe).
 In the rolling dales of Yorkshire, a simple, rural region of northern England, a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in a strange land, he must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike. This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the author’s own experiences, became an international success, spawning sequels and winning over animal lovers everywhere. Perhaps better than any other writer, James Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives.

    This is a delightful book about a young veterinarian's first two years of practice in rural northern England in the late 1930's. It is written in a very down-to-earth way that depicts the author's daily experiences, the quirkiness of the older farmers, and the rugged beauty of the countryside. His love for his work and the animals is evident, and it is easy for the reader to feel like they too are experiencing the ups and downs of this doctor's daily calls.
