In this third enchanting collection of stories, James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian, picks up where All Things Bright and Beautiful left off: World War II has begun, and James has been inducted into the RAF. We see him at training camp and we go back with him to Yorkshire - on real trips as he breaks away to see Helen, who is about to have a baby, and on trips of reverie as he recalls the dales, the animals, and the Yorkshire people who have so enriched his life. We meet old friends again - his partner Siegfried, the zany Tristan, the bon vivant Granville Bennett - and scores of new folk, each with a story to tell. James Herriot is back and, as one reviewer said of his work, "If ever you have loved a friend, human or otherwise, these stories are for you."More
"...humor, realism, sensitivity, earthiness...gentle compassion and a lively sense of the sad, the ridiculous, and the admirable." (Columbus Dispatch)
