All Things Wise And Wonderful

Updated on August 30, 2017

My Review

The third book in the great series that was started with "All Creatures Great And Small." The continuing adventures of everybody's favorite country vet, James Herriot, and his partners, Sigfried and Tristan. There's still a lot of humor, and a lot of interesting characters. I can only imagine what it would have been like to work as a Vet in those times.

Any animal lover has to read this book!

The Real James Herriot: A Memoir of My Father
The Real James Herriot: A Memoir of My Father

No one is better poised to write the biography of James Herriot than the son who worked alongside him in the Yorkshire veterinary practice when Herriot became an internationally bestselling author. Now, in this warm and poignant biography, Jim Wight ventures beyond his father's life as a veterinarian to reveal the man behind the stories--the private individual who refused to allow fame and wealth to interfere with his practice or his family. With access to all of his father's papers, correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs--and intimate recollections of the farmers, locals, and friends who populate the James Herriot books--only Jim Wight could write this definitive biography of the man who was not only his father but his best friend.
