Summary

The first book by legendary vet James Herriot, set in 1930's Yorkshire. When the newly qualified vet, James Herriot, arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, he has no idea of the new friends he will meet or adventures that lie ahead.
From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, this first volume of unforgettable memoirs chronicles James Herriot's first years as a country vet, with the signature storytelling magic that has made him a favourite the world over.
Here is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic of wild places and beautiful countryside.

Entertaining and light hearted book

I found this a most entertaining book and enjoyed it right from the start, I watch the series on TV but this did not ruin the reading of this book. I will listen to it a few more times over the coming months.
