Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second volume in the multimillion copy bestselling series. Millions of readers have delighted in the wonderful storytelling and everyday miracles of James Herriot in the over thirty years since his delightful animal stories were first introduced to the world.

Now in a new edition for the first time in a decade, All Things Bright and Beautiful is the beloved sequel to Herriot's first collection, All Creatures Great and Small, and picks up as Herriot, now newly married, journeys among the remote hillside farms and valley towns of the Yorkshire Dales, caring for their inhabitants — both two- and four-legged. Throughout, Herriot's deep compassion, humor, and love of life shine out as we laugh, cry, and delight in his portraits of his many, varied animal patients and their equally varied owners.

Review:

Review:

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

Review:

"All Things Bright and Beautiful is like a visit to a loved place inhabited by dear friends . . . certainly the happiest book so far this season." The Plain Dealer

Review:

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

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

Review:

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

Review:

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

Synopsis:

Beloved Yorkshire veterinarian Herriot delightfully continues where he leaves off in his first book with more marvelous adventures and a whole new menagerie of memorable patients.

Possibly the most entertaining of James Herriot's captivating autobiographical narratives, All Things Bright and Beautiful chronicles Mr. Herriot's Yorkshire veterinary practice in the 1930's. Naturally a narrative for animal lovers of all ages, readers will find themselves laughing aloud at Herriot's hilarious attempts to woo and court his future wife, Helen. Teeming with the antics of characters in the fullest sense of the word, made all the more charming by the fact that their stories are true! Simply a delight for all ages.
