Author Info
James Herriot
James Alfred Wight Sunderland grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, where he attended veterinary school. He worked as a country veterinarian for the majority of his life, only beginning to write at the age of 50. He remained in the region of Yorkshire in Northern England from 1940 until his death, with brief posts in the former Soviet Union and Istanbul in the 1960s. In the early 1970s, "Alf" Wight, writing as James Herriot, had his first book published, ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL. Based on his work with animals, this memoir became a huge hit all over the world. A few years later, the BBC produced a television series based on the popular title. Herriot's other books, including ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL, were also well-received by the public. Herriot has inspired countless animal lovers and future veterinarians with his love of animals and his portrayal of the common men and women within his community. Several of his books have been made into films, and the Yorkshire Dales, where he lived and worked, attracts numerous visitors who desire to see for themselves the setting for his books. Wight died of cancer near the town of Thirsk.
From the Publisher
Editors Note             James Herriot illuminated the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, taking hundreds of thousands of listeners on a journey with him across the dales. He introduces a cast of truly unforgettable characters: humans, dogs, horses, lambs—even parakeets—all of them revealed with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. The stories are made all the more special by the world-renowned “voice” of Dr. Herriot— Christopher Timothy, whose performance warmly and evocatively brings the stories to life. Now his first three classic works, digitally remastered on CD, are brought together in a beautiful gift set sharing with even more listeners the joy of James Herriot.
