With their fascinating, at times humorous and at times heart-wrenching tales taken from the real-life experiences of a country vet, James Herriot’s books inform, entertain and enlighten. This James Herriot box set, featuring three of the all-time bestselling books from his All Creatures Great and Small series of true stories about his work and life as a veterinarian, is currently available for just $17.49. From Amazon:
Timeless stories from a country veterinarian about the animals and people that shape life in a sleepy English town.
Perhaps better than any other writer, James Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the natural world. Collected here are three of his masterpieces—All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and All Things Wise and Wonderful—which have been winning over animal lovers everywhere for almost fifty years. From his night visits to drafty barns during freezing northern England winters, to the beautiful vitality of rural life in the summertime, to the colorful menagerie of animals—and their owners—that pass through his office, Herriot vividly evokes the daily challenges and joys that come with being a veterinarian.
Witty and heartwarming, these classic books also feature an original introduction from the author’s son, Jim Wight, and bonus archival photos courtesy of the Herriot estate.
