This collection of tales about the beloved veterinarian's encounters with various members of the animal kingdom is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever loved a pet.

When you enter the world of James Herriot's Animal Stories, you'll share his wonder and humor, his adventures and misadventures as he contends with pet owners and landowners; rough-spoken farmers and soft-spoken gentry; orphaned lambs, litters of piglets and puppies, cattle and draught horses; and a miscellany of cats and dogs including, of course, Mrs. Pumphrey's inimitable Pekinese, Tricki Woo.

Reviews for James Herriot's Animal Stories

James Herriot found a gentle, wise and often humorous way to write about animals and to evoke a beautiful but fading way of life in those Yorkshire Hills...I can't say that I have ever quite matched the writing...but he has always inspired me and given me something to aim for. Jon Katz, NYT bestselling author of Second Chance Dog I recall reading All Creatures Great and Small many years ago, while working as a veterinary technician...Herriot to me remains a superhero of sorts, who...taught me how simple, heartwarming prose about people and their animals could...become art. Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill
