Publisher's Summary

The fifth volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.

During his decades spent as a country vet in Yorkshire, James Herriot has seen huge advances in medical science, technological leaps, and a world irrevocably changed by war. Yet some things have always stayed the same - gruff farmers, hypochondriac pet owners, and animals that never do quite what you expect them to. From a green young man in his first job in the 1930s to an experienced veterinary surgeon, married with two children, James has spent his entire career among the people and animals of Darrowby. And there's nowhere else he'd rather be.

Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, Every Living Thing is a heartwarming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Perfect cosy read

Fantastic series with the perfect narrator, just wish the whole series was available unabridged! Great for fans of the Dales, and every aspiring vet.

A thoroughly lovely series

I have really enjoyed this series, I thought I would find it a bit stale having seen the TV programmes years ago. It was not, it was fresh, filed with lovely characters, sweet humorous tales and the ups and downs of a country vet.! Wonderful!

Charming and engrossing

The skilled narration transports you to the Dales. This is easy listening but the stories which illuminate every day life can give you not only an insight to social history but pause for thought. I loved it.
