The classic multimillion copy bestseller Delve into the magical, unforgettable world of James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian, and his menagerie of heartwarming, funny, and tragic animal patients. For over forty years, generations of readers have thrilled to Herriot's marvelous tales, deep love of life, and extraordinary storytelling abilities. For decades, Herriot roamed the remote, beautiful Yorkshire Dales, treating every patient that came his way from smallest to largest, and observing animals and humans alike with his keen, loving eye. In All Creatures Great and Small, we meet the young Herriot as he takes up his calling and discovers that the realities of veterinary practice in rural Yorkshire are very different from the sterile setting of veterinary school. Some visits are heart-wrenchingly difficult, such as one to an old man in the village whose very ill dog is his only friend and companion, some are lighthearted and fun, such as Herriot's periodic visits to the overfed and pampered Pekinese Tricki Woo who throws parties and has his own stationery, and yet others are inspirational and enlightening, such as Herriot's recollections of poor farmers who will scrape their meager earnings together to be able to get proper care for their working animals. From seeing to his patients in the depths of winter on the remotest homesteads to dealing with uncooperative owners and critically ill animals, Herriot discovers the wondrous variety and never-ending challenges of veterinary practice as his humor, compassion, and love of the animal world shine forth. James Herriot's memoirs have sold 80 million copies worldwide, and continue to delight and entertain readers of all ages.

The first two memoirs in the New York Times–bestselling series from an English veterinarian—and the basis for the Masterpiece series on PBS. All Creatures Great and Small: In the rolling dales of Yorkshire—a simple, rural region of Northern England—a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in an unfamiliar land, James Herriot must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike. All Things Bright and Beautiful: After his first day on the job, Herriot’s mentor warns him that the life of a country veterinarian is full of small triumphs and big disasters, but that he’d never be bored. From night visits to drafty barns during freezing Northern England winters to the beautiful vitality of rural life in the summertime to the colorful menagerie of animals—and their owners—that pass through his office, Herriot experiences new challenges and joys every day. In these pages, Herriot trains under his eccentric boss in a rustic English village, courts the woman that becomes his wife, and meets the people he would come to write about for a lifetime.

Perhaps better than any other writer, Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives. Praise for All Creatures Great and Small: “One of the funniest and most likeable books around.” —The Atlantic “Refreshingly original . . . Hilarious, touching, athletic and warming . . . Dr. Herriot’s characters . . . rival any from British fiction.” ―Los Angeles Times

All Creatures Great and Small is a collection of nine charming allegories set within the Creator’s forest. As each story unfolds, the happenings and mishaps of its furry and feathered characters illustrate each of the nine beatitudes of Jesus. All Creatures Great and Small seeks to paint a beautiful picture of all that believers might hope to be through following the teachings of Christ. Linda Read has a precious heart after the Lord. Her book on the beatitudes illustrates Jesus’s core sermon with lovable characters in a way that children will understand. I pray that many parents will read this to their little ones and teach their children about God’s heart and His Kingdom from a very young age. In Mozambique, we have discipleship with the children each week and read stories about God’s love, power, and glory. Our children will be the world changers, walking in the legacy we pour into them and in even greater things than we have seen. We look forward to reading this story with our treasures and we hope that you will enjoy it as well. Heidi G. Baker, PhD Co-Founder and Director of Iris Global What an honor and joy it has been to read Linda’s first children’s book! In the stories I could see the heart of God portrayed so beautifully through the lives of the animals. My prayer is that all the children, teens and adults who read Linda’s book will have their eyes opened to the loving God who desires to have a relationship with us, just as He did with the animals in the stories. So, grab a tall glass of iced tea and enjoy a new perspective on the beatitudes. Carol Boening - Life-long friend and Director of AWANA, First Baptist Church, Yoakum, Texas As these animals live daily life in the forest, they teach lessons that both children and adults often face. These delightfully quirky animals handle many different scenarios in a Biblical and valuable way. This book is written in such a way that it will appeal to both children and adults. As Leah the eagle finds love, and Benjamin Beaver discovers the value of his spiritual presence in others’ lives, children learn how to handle difficult emotions, and discover their Christ-centered identity, and adults are reminded where true identity comes from. In reading this book to their children, parents will open up a world of possibility and discovery. It will also allow room for conversation and growth of relationship. Randy Turner - South Campus Pastor, Beltway Park Church, Abilene, Texas

But life as a vet in the 1930s was never going to be easy. Quite aside from his unpredictable colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, he must contend with new-fangled medical techniques, delivering calves after far too much home-made wine, and a grudge-holding dog called Magnus who never forgets.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 I had to deliver the calf by embryotomy, passing a wire over the neck and sawing off the head. So many of these occasions ended with the floor strewn with heads, legs, heaps of intestines. #2 I had been trying to save the little calf’s life for nearly two hours, and I was still unable to save it. The farmer’s brother, who had never met my colleague, had heard great things about him. #3 All farmers were experts with other farmers’ livestock, and their advice was usually more valuable than the vet’s. I had observed that their advice was often more helpful than the vet’s. #4 I had to repel the calf, which was difficult because the animal was slippery and its mouth was sharp. I eventually managed to pull the head out and the rest of the body followed easily. The little animal lay motionless on the cobbles, eyes glassy and unseeing, tongue blue and grossly swollen.
