    Author Information
    James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including "All Things Bright and Beautiful," "All Things Wise and Wonderful," "The Lord God Made Them All," and "Every Living Thing." At age 23, Herriot qualified for veterinary practice with the Glasgow Veterinary College, and moved to the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire to work in a rural practice. He would live in, work in, and write about the region for the rest of his life. Though he dreamed for years of writing a book, his veterinary work and his family kept him busy, and he did not start writing until the age of 50. In 1979, he was awarded the title Order of the British Empire (OBE). His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.
    Review quote
    "One of the funniest and most likeable books around."-- "Atlantic Monthly" "If there is any justice, "All Creatures Great And Small" will become a classic of its kind...With seemingly effortless art, this man tells his stories with perfect timing and optimum scale. Many more famous authors could work for a lifetime and not achieve more flawless literary control."-- "Chicago Tribune Book World" "Herriot charms because he delights in life, embraces it with sensitivity and gust and writes with grace. "All Creatures Great And Small" may well be the happiest book of the year."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
