Publisher's Summary

The volume that completes the verse: All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.


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.

    "Not my fave, but still good"

    This is my least favorite of the four in the series, but as you can see from the ratings I gave it, it's still good.

    Unlike most of his works, this one has portions that some parents will want to pre-screen before reading to young children because of explicit references to animal sexuality, detailed accounts of collecting specimens for artificial insemination, etc. And, additionally, parents should be aware that this was a hard-drinking culture, and Herriot didn't minimize that fact.

    The story is also oddly disjointed, making frequent jumps from the 1940's to the 1960's and back again, which detracted from its quality in my opinion.

    However, it's still very enjoyable because Herriot had a wonderful eye for beauty, for humor, for poignancy, for sorrow, for joy. And he knew how to set it all down masterfully on paper.

    And the narration? Well, it's Christopher Timothy! What more needs to be said? He's wonderful.

    "We could only get 1/2 of the book!!!!"
    What would have made The Lord God Made Them All better?

    We could only get to 1/2 of the book before it quit!!!!!<br/>Getting to hear the rest of the story would have been great.

    Favorite author is Pat Conroy. Recently read and enjoyed the Goldfinch by Tartt. Also love sports books, especially baseball fiction and non-fiction. Biographies are of interest too.

    Herriot's stories of the life of a country vet never cease to charm. Excellent narrator brings the stories to life.

    "Another Fabulous Installment"

    The "All Creatures" series is one of those rare creations; a charming and moving series that can be shared by generations of readers. Herriot's warm and evocative prose coupled with Christopher Timothy's enthusiastic - almost loving - reading is a joy to hear. All four books are worth a read or a listen (or both!) and I find myself returning to them again and again, like visiting old friends.

    "Great series"

    I love listening to these books. In this time of political rantings against Trump, it is so nice to return to a simpler and kinder time....a setting of country farms and light stories...Highly recommend this series.

    "Excellent series!!"

    I could listen to James Herriot talk about his entire life with Christopher Timothy's reading. I thoroughly enjoyed all of his books. I really hope he will publish another!
