With two years experience behind him, James Herriot still feels privileged to be working on the beautiful Yorkshire moors as assistant vet at the Darrowby practice. Time to meet yet more unwilling patients and a rich cast of supporting owners.
From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, this third volume of memoirs is full of hilarious tales of his unpredictable boss Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, the joys of spring lambing, a vicious cat called Boris and James’ jinxed courtship of the lovely Helen.
