Charming Tales of James Herriot


James Herriot is far and away one of my favorite storytellers. His experiences as a large and small animal vet in the Yorkshire Dales countryside in the 1930s and 40s can turn on the faucets inside you, whether crying when Mr. Dean loses his only friend or peeing your pants laughing over wine-tasting with Mr. Crump. Brilliant and beautiful tales, these are his own selections from his books All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, James Herriot's Yorkshire, and The Lord God Made Them All.
