Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Herriot is the pen name of James Alfred Wight, OBE, also known as Alf Wight (3 October 1916 - 23 February 1995), an English veterinary surgeon and writer. Wight is best known for his semi-autobiographical stories, often referred to collectively as All Creatures Great and Small, a title used in some editions and in film and television adaptations. James Alfred Wight was born on 3 October 1916, in Sunderland, County Durham, England to James (1890-1960) and Hannah (1890-1980) Wight. Shortly after their wedding, the Wights moved from Brandling Street, Sunderland to Glasgow in Scotland, where James took work as both a ship plater and pianist for a local cinema, while Hannah was a singer as well as a dressmaker. For Alf's birth, his mother returned to Sunderland, bringing him back to Glasgow when he was three weeks old. He attended Yoker Primary School and Hillhead High School.show more
