Yorkshire Revisitedby James Herriot
Synopses & Reviews
James Herriot lived and worked in North Yorkshire, England, for over fifty years, first and foremost as a vet, but in his later years as one of the world's most successful authors. Twenty years ago, the bestselling book, James Herriot's Yorkshire combined hundreds of color photos with a moving essay highlighting the places he loved so much - from the lush valley meadows in the springtime to the remote villages during the depths of winter. Now, two decades later, the Herriot estate has authorized the creation of a new book on Yorkshire that matches the original in both charm and grace. Complete with an introduction by James Herriot's son, Jim Wight, James Herriot's Yorkshire Revisited brings together never-before-seen photos with evocative excerpts from Herriot's eight major works.
Nearly 100 new images of Herriot country are matched with evocative passages drawn from his work to create this unique gift book. 85 color illustrations.
The timeless countryside of northern England has become a second home to readers the world over through the words of James Herriot. In All Creatures Great and Small and his many other books he brought the people and places of Yorkshire to shimmering life. Twenty years ago, the writer celebrated those villages and dales in James Herriot's Yorkshire, a densely illustrated photo essay that has sold nearly half a million copies. Now, in this treasurable keepsake volume, nearly 100 new images of Herriot country are matched with evocative passages drawn from Herriot's work, to create a unique gift book: The perfect introduction for new Herriot readers, and, for longtime fans, a welcome return to this storyteller's glorious landscape.
About the Author
James Herriot grew up in Scotland and moved to Yorkshire after attending Glasgow Veterinary College. He was a practicing veterinarian in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, from 1940 until shortly before his death in 1995. All of James Herriot's books have been international bestsellers, and were made into the immensely successful television series All Creatures Great and Small, as well as two-full length films. Despite his tremendous popularity, James Herriot remained an essentially private man and liked nothing more than to spend time with his family and dogs.
Derry Brabbs is an outstanding photographer whose first published works were used in James Herriot's Yorkshire. He has written and supplied the photographs for several acclaimed books on the English countryside. He lives near Harrogate in North Yorkshire.
