Every living thingby James Herriot
Synopses & Reviews
Celebrate the return of the most beloved storyteller of our time!
The waiting is finally over. For the first time in over a decade, the world's favorite veterinarian, James Herriot, returns us in a twinkle to the rural green enclave of England called Yorkshire for more irresistible tales of animals and people.
At long last, another treat from Herriot!
In stories of wonders great and small, James reintroduces many old friends like Mrs. Pumphrey, his partner Siegfried Farnon, and of course, his wife Helen. But there are wonderful new faces too, especially his children Rosie and Jimmy, and his latest assistant, Calum Buchanan.
Herriot works his magic again!
Offering readers an even more intimate view of the life and dreams of a country vet than any of his previous volumes, James Herriot's Every Living Thing is a book that will warm your heart, make you laugh out loud, and feel so good you'll never want it to end.
Herriot really does love Every Living Thing...and so will you!
From the author of All Creatures Great and Small — an enchanting volume of memoirs. You'll meet his associate, John Crooks; his partner, Siegfried; more of the farmers and village-dwellers who form his diverse (and sometimes rather eccentric) clientele; and more of his patients — the farm and domestic animals on which Dr. Herriot lavishes his affection, care and love.
The fifth and final volume of James Herriots bestselling series of animal stories now available in unabridged CD format for the first time.
Herriots heartwarming story collections brings back familiar friends (including old favorites such as Tricki Woo) and introduces new ones, including Herriots children Rosie and Jimmy and the marvelously eccentric Calum Buchanan.
These programs provide a perfect opportunity for existing fans of Herriots work to reacquaint themselves with his writing, and for those whove never read him to hear what generations of animal lovers have already discovered: James Herriot is that rarest of creatures, a genuine master storyteller.
