“James Herriot found a gentle, wise and often humorous way to write about animals and to evoke a beautiful but fading way of life in those Yorkshire Hills...I can't say that I have ever quite matched the writing...but he has always inspired me and given me something to aim for.” ―Jon Katz, NYT bestselling author of Second Chance Dog
“I recall reading All Creatures Great and Small many years ago, while working as a veterinary technician...Herriot to me remains a superhero of sorts, who...taught me how simple, heartwarming prose about people and their animals could...become art.” ―Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill

The James Herriot series is a heart-warming, nostalgic, and often hilarious walk through pre-and- post-war Yorkshire farmland. Wight's characters and his own personality come alive through his simple-yet-skillful recounting of a profession in constant evolution. He brings back to life an era that has long since passed, and his gentle, unassuming intelligence and humanity illuminate every anecdote.
The series is pure joy for animal lovers and historians alike; one I often go back to after a hard day in order to fall asleep with a smile.
I also highly recommend the biography of J. Alfred Wight that was written by his son Jim: "The Real James Herriot, a Memoir of my Father".
