The fourth volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.
Finally home from London after his wartime service in the RAF, James Herriot is settling back into life as a country vet. While the world has changed after the war, the blunt Yorkshire clients and menagerie of beasts with weird and wonderful ailments remain the same. But between his young son, Jimmy, trailing him around aping his every move, stubborn farmers refusing to try his 'new-fangled' treatments and a goat that has eaten 293 tomatoes, Darrowby is far from quiet. And with another baby on the way, life is about to get even more chaotic....
Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, The Lord God Made Them All is a heartwarming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Say something about yourself!
Been a fan for years and thought I had read them all. This tells a different story but well done and would not be the same without Timothy narrating.
Love the James Herriot books. Well read by Christopher Timothy. But the music is really annoying as it interrupts chapters. And is too long.
"A wonderful easy listening 5 * book"
Gentle, funny, emotional and so very e
njoyable from beginning to end. Chrisopher Timothy brings every word to life.
Excellent book, which never ages and appeals to a wide audience. Well read by Christopher Timothy.
The only fault I could find was the recording itself was poor, other than that Christopher Timothy was perfect.
