Contains Vets Might Fly and Vet in a Spin The third volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small Training as an RAF pilot in the smoke and bustle of London is a far cry from James Herriot's day job as a country vet in the Yorkshire Dales. And while he is keen to serve Queen and country, James cannot help but miss his life in Darrowby - despite frequent arguments between his colleagues, ornery cattle and equally ornery farmers, and the continuing saga of Cedric the flatulent dog. But most of all he misses his wife Helen; pregnant with their first child. The question is constantly hanging over him - will he be going to war? And when will he get to go home? Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Wise and Wonderful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

A dissection of the five memoirs of James Herriot, beginning with All Creatures Great and Small. It provides a comprehensive catalogue of the plots and themes, along with observations. It examines why Herriot was so successful and seeks to be enlightening and encouraging for budding writers struggling to get published. Sternlicht is not writing from across the water with no knowledge of Yorkshire or its people: he was appointed Leverhulme Visiting Fellow at the University of York in 1965.
