health maintenance over the years and it is nice to know that there are still things they keep learning just as in human health care. The personal
life has also made strides and continues to change as time goes by, but the love for nature and animals continues to be the big attraction in the story.
I immediately purchased this one and was just as taken as with the first one.
Herriot writes with such love for his profession and all the creatures and their owners he encounters through the years. One can almost see and feel as he does through his words.
Do not pass up the opportunity to read any of this author's books. They are so well written and descriptive that they will grab your heart and not let go.
