All Creatures Great And Small
A Book For Animal Lovers
If you have a love for both pets and farm animals, you need to read this book by James Herriot. It's about a country veterinarian working in the 30's and 40's in the English countryside. There's some wonderful characters, and some great animal stories in it. The American version is a combination of smaller books that were released in England. His publisher decided that they weren't big enough for American audiences, so they found a way to make them palatable for Americans.
I didn't read this book until I was in high school, and I really wish I would have discovered it sooner. Now, of course, I own it, and the succeeding books he wrote later.
An Easy Read
Although, James Herriot is a veterinarian, his writing is simple enough for anyone to understand. Reading this book you will feel a variety of emotions. Everything from sadness, to hilarity. It's really a well-written book.
