The triumphant conclusion to the legendary series
With each book more engaging than the last, James Herriot once again brings us the magical beauty of Yorkshire through his uplifting experiences as a country veterinarian. These stories provide a grand finale to the wonderful books that began with "All Creatures Great and Small" and continued in "All Things Bright and Beautiful" and "All Things Wise and Wonderful."
It is just after World War II, and James has returned from the Royal Air Force to do battle with the diseases and injuries that befall the farm animals and pets of Skeldale and the surrounding moors. Four-year-old Jimmy Herriot, Humphrey Cobb and his little beagle Myrtle, Norman the book-loving veterinary assistant, and many more new faces join old favorites among the green hills of Yorkshire, as James takes an unforgettable voyage to Russia on a freighter with 383 pedigreed sheep. Touching our hearts with laughter and wisdom, lifting our spirits with compassion and goodness, James Herriot never fails to delight.

These four books were the first I read from the adult section of the tiny town library I grew up with. Still remember them fondly - still don't want to be involved in animal husbandry or to have a pet. That universality of appeal is a large part of their genius. Read full review

Bought this as a gift for a young lady and she truly loved it. These are great stories about a time and way of life long gone but still remain relevant today. Read full review

About the author (1982)

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