Young Scotsman Herriot had just passed his veterinary exams in the 30's when work of any kind was hard to come by. He was fortunate to be taken on as an assistant by Siegfried, and established vet with a practice in the Yorkshire Dales. Soon they were joined by Siegfried's younger brother Tristan, who had failed his vet exams but still helped on the rounds. This is a region that took adjustment for the young vet, as he was an outsider and the terrain was difficult, made worse because Herriot's loaner car didn't have brakes. He proved himself to be smart, innovative, and courageous, as he described shoving his hands in places that make the reader cringe. He does whatever he can to help both the animals and the farmers who are often on the edge of survival.

This is one of my best reads of the year. There are grim situations, but Herriot also writes of his hilarious date with Helen, when the rest of the house tried to cobble together appropriate dinner clothes for him, or the comical frustration of dealing with a boss who didn't listen. ( )

3.5 stars. For awhile, the stories were all kind of one-note. Animals were talked about with care and generosity, people a bit less so. If the narrator liked a person, the narrative glowed. If not, they weren’t shown in such a flattering light.
It’s very clear to me why these stories are so beloved. There’s no hero, no villain, just real people and the observations of someone who spent his time among them and just accepted them as they are. I’m not sure I know of a similar story, maybe that’s why it took awhile to warm to it. But warm I did, and by the end of the book I enjoyed everything much more. Herriot’s observations are gentle, even the folks he struggles with are treated mostly respectfully, and with a measure of humor. He doesn’t have a problem laughing at himself or divulging his fears and concerns, and thru the good and the bad of his country vet life it’s quite clear that he loves his work and the setting.
The one thing that would make me hesitate before sharing this book with my kids is the semi-frequent foul language. Nothing above perhaps a PG rating, but still. I think there is a children’s treasury of his stories, perhaps I’ll look in that direction. ( )

This book is so good! So funny & a really good pick me up for when you're feeling down. Definitely five stars :)

An episodic biography of veterinarian James Herriott. The chapters are short and enjoyable with laugh out loud human and animal antics. ( )

Great look at the humor and challenges of rural veterinary practice in Britain a century ago. James Herriot is a master storyteller who keeps the reader's interest and emphasizes the blessing of common things. ( )
