Review by Booklist Reviews

Just in time for the holiday season comes another posthumous collection of the veterinarian's animal stories. This volume includes 10 of the prolific author's most popular tales of animal husbandry, accompanied by Lesley Holmes' soft watercolor illustrations and an introduction by Jim Wight, Herriot's son, who is also a practicing veterinarian. There is nothing new or unusual in this vaguely familiar compilation of stories about cats, dogs, horses, cows, goats, and the uncomplicated, simple lifestyles of the farmers and villagers of England's Yorkshire countryside. Herriot's stories are interesting and enjoyable to read, not only for his portrayal of Yorkshire and its quirky inhabitants but also for his insightful take on human-animal relationships. Fans will not be disappointed. ((Reviewed October 15, 1997)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews

When you enter the world of James Herriot's Animal Stories, you’ll share his wonder and humor, his adventures and misadventures as he contends with pet owners and landowners; rough-spoken farmers and soft-spoken gentry; orphaned lambs, litters of piglets and puppies, cattle and draught horses; and a miscellany of cats and dogs including, of course, Mrs. Pumphrey’s inimitable Pekinese, Tricki Woo.
