Publisher Comments:

The world's most beloved animal doctor delightfully continues where he left off in All Creatures Great and Small with new adventures through the Yorkshire dales-- and a whole new menagerie of memorable patients.

Young James, now married and working as a small-town vet, encounters a cast of extraordinary characters as he makes his way through the Yorkshire countryside tending to sick cattle, pregnant ewes, ailing dogs-- and their eccentric owners. As always, Herriot's warmth, humor, and singular view of life make us laugh and cry, as we marvel at the everyday miracles he creates.

James Herriot was born in Scotland and practiced veterinary medicine in Yorkshire, England, for half a century until he died in 1995. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the bestseller All Creatures Great and Small.

"The kind of book that makes an evening seem a little warmer and your pet a bit more important."The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A very warm, very engaging read . . . the reader falls totally under his spell."The Associated Press

"Whether sad or glad, each story shows his affection for animals and people . . . this man is a celebrant of life."Chicago Tribune

"Herriot is both tender and wise . . . All Things Bright and Beautiful is a book to be happy with."The Boston Globe

"You had better read this book yourself. It's a treat, a rare one, and God knows we all need all treat these days."The Washington Post

"Human beings just naturally respond to a writer as lovable, wholesome, eloquent, humorous and well-stocked with anecdotes as James Herriot. He offers a mastery of both the comic and the tragic."Chicago Tribune

"All Things Bright and Beautiful is like a visit to a loved place inhabited by dear friends."The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"James Herriot has served up another warm, witty, wonderful book in All Things Bright and Beautiful."The Indianapolis News

"It is impossible to speak of this second book without thinking strongly of the first. For it is truly a repeated 'miracle' as All Creatures Great and Small was described. Whatever joy one found in the first is in the second, only even more joyous; whatever laughter rippled from the throat in the reading of the first, finds even greater gusto in this one. It is funny, wry, simple in its story but as deep and perceptive of life's truths as the superlative sensitivity of the writer and his talent can make it. Best seller list, look out!"The Hartford Courant

"Humour, realism, sensitivity, earthiness; animals comic and tragic; and people droll, pathetic, courageous, eccentricall of whom he views with the same gentle compassion and a lively sense of the sad, the ridiculous, and the admirable."The Columbus Dispatch

"Superb, a book to be enjoyed in one sitting or in bits and pieces to make it last longer."Library Journal
