Although I have read all of James Herriot's books and most of these stories were familiar to me, this book was still a joy to read. The illustrations were a wonderful addition to the old tales. The informational side notes and illustrations were helpful, as many of the old farm tools, implements and veterinary devices he mentions are not familiar to most of us readers.

The photography included provides the necessary visual to go along with Herriot's descriptions of the natural beauty of Yorkshire, the farms where he practices and the little villages he passes through. Many readers probably appreciate the information and graphic examples of the different breeds of animals he mentions.

This book is a great way to introduce young readers to Herriot; each chapter is a nice length and the photography and illustrations keep a child interested in the story. Buy this book for the whole family to enjoy. ( )

I haven't read James Herriot since I was a child, but I have fond memories of his compassion for animals. As I have an impending visit to Yorkshire and the Dales, I was delighted to find this old collection of his at a thrift store. I really wanted to get an intimate view of the people and the place, and wow, this did that. Herriot's stories are a joy. Cozy, touching, and full of humanity. Sometimes that humanity is frustrating and selfish, other times sad (this book did make me cry a couple times), and also laugh out loud funny.

This particular edition was especially wonderful because it included far more than his stories. This dictionary-sized hardcover has illustrations throughout, and marginalia that provides insights on life in the Dales during the Victorian era up though the '50s. This includes factoids on animals, peat harvesting, and farm and veterinary equipment, and even some traditional recipes. There are also color photo sections sporadically throughout the book that discuss things like Yorkshire castles, pubs, and the native flora and fauna. As a research geek, this thrilled me. I was left with a comprehensive overview of the region and life the way it used to be.

If you're of this same mindset, it's well worth seeking out this particular edition. I intend to keep it on my shelf as a reference book for my writing. ( )

James Herroit recounts his favourite memories, often humerous, as a young vet in Yorkshire around the 1940s-1950s. This volume is also interspersed with interesting facts and photo's of local scenery, history, customs, animals and plants. ( )

Took my time with this old-fashioned, sweet and gentle gem. The book itself is stunning; the photos top-notch, and the stories are so well-written I felt I was right there in fictional Darrowby (based on real locations) with Herriot. His respectful description of the folks he meets is touching and refreshing, and his natural love and care of the many animals he treats is heart-warming and inspiring.

This book is bursting with the beauty of Yorkshire's countryside, as well as with the charm and strength of character of its farmers, their innate goodness, their dialect, mannerisms and humor.

Read this from cover to cover or pick out stories at random. You'll get to meet Gyp, the non-barking dog, John the farmer without wife or children who dotes on 2 elderly horses, and one about the Christmas kitten, and many other special and moving stories.

This is the perfect time to read a steadying book like this. Its a reminder of simpler times, the meaning of hard work, devotion and love of family, land and country, respect for others, and decency.

This phenomenal book is not going anywhere; it has a home in my home. ( )
