The inspiration for the BBC series of the same name. Fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, to the young James Herriot 1930s Yorkshire seems to offer an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But from his erratic new colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, to incomprehensible farmers, herds of semiferal cattle, a pig called Nugent and an overweight Pekingese called Tricki Woo, James find he is on a learning curve as steep as the hills around him.

I have read every James Herriot book. I have loved them since I was very Young. I remember my Dad reading them at night in the winter and hearing him chuckle as he read them. When I heard over the radio one morning that the author had passed away I actually cried. RIP and thank you so much for your legacy of love and laughter and such sweet memories.
Growing up on a farm as I listen to this audible book it is so vivid and enjoyable.
I highly recommend it AND I was pleased that the narrator's voice was exactly as I imagined my beloved author's character would sound. You won't be disappointed worth every penny ENJOY
