The world's most beloved storyteller once again brings us the magical beauty of Yorkshire, the joys and sorrows of its inhabitants, and the richly rewarding experiences of a country veterinarian.
James and Helen now have two growing children, Jimmy and Rosie, who bring a new kind of adventure into James' life. The Herriots live at Skeldale House on the edge of the Yorkshire dales, whose peace, solitude, and feel of the wild make the countryside both thrilling and comforting at the same time.
It is the 1950s, a time of new advances in veterinary medicine, but the hard-working people of Yorkshire have not changed. That includes James' dear old friends Siegfried and Tristan - neither of whom has lost his great good humor. We also meet new friends, as James travels behind the Iron Curtain and learns about a world very different from his own. And always, his wonder, exhilaration, and affection glow in every word, whether he is talking about the glories of the moors and dales or the fascination of the people.

I have loved the James Herriot collection for years and am now ecstatic to have it on my iPod. All his stories elicit a 'feel good' feeling for the listener with his brilliant writing and subject matter. Add Christopher Timothy's ability to make it all come to life in audio and you've got a winning combination over all.
