Publisher's Summary

James Herriot has now become firmly established and accepted as one of Darrowby's veterinarians. He's also married, and lives with his wife Helen on the top floor of Skeldale House. His former boss, now partner, Siegfried, lives downstairs with Siegfried's brother Tristan.

Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

    "Again a beautiful story"

    James Herriot brings forth the beauty of the countryside in the early 1940s. The only thing that bothered me is sometimes the audio gets muddy. Not the fault of the narrator just some issue with the audio recording or something.

    "Brightens my day"

    Loved hearing this as much as I loved reading it way back when in the 70s. Takes one back in time to a more spimple era just as the modern day changes are just beginning. Gives me great peace and the joy of being alive.

    "Great!"

    What can I say to the heart warming stories, but great. Some very minor background noises in some sections of the recording, but very easy to ignore. The narrator is the best.
