The Lord God made them all
The war is over, the RAF uniform has been handed in and James Herriot goes back to where he ought to be at work in the dales around Darrowby.
From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, this seventh volume of superb memoirs recounts James Herriot’s return to Darrowby after the war. Much has changed, but the blunt-spoken Yorkshire folk and the host of four-legged patients are still the same. So is their vet, who doesn’t yet know that literary success is just around the corner.
‘He can tell a good story against himself, and his pleasure in the beauty of the countryside in which he works is infectious’
