Author information

James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including "All Creatures Great and Small," "All Things Bright and Beautiful," "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

"Surely no one can read Herriot without gaining a new and compassionate insight into "All Things Wise and Wonderful" in the world around him. A grand book."--"The Baltimore Sun" "Herriot has gifted us with his hilarious, deeply moving and personal experience with all creatures that live and breathe."--"The Fresno Bee" "Some stories are funny, some are earthy, some dramatic and some touching to the point of tears."--"The Washington Post"
