Herriot, James

#AtoZChallenge 2024 letter H 

Sometime late in my teen years, I discovered James Herriot's books. I was totally captivated by this veterinarian from the hills of Scotland. In fact, I was so enthralled, I decided I wanted to become a veterinarian, myself! (Yeah, that didn't happen...)
Herriot writes with wit and humor, which is endearing. He also writes descriptively, which makes it easy to picture the countryside, and his vet duties.

I have watched the "All Creatures Great and Small" television series, but I honestly prefer the books. 

Have you read his books? Or watched the series on TV?


  1. I watched a much earlier version of All Creatures Great and Small and I think I was too young to appreciate it but now having watched the new series I want to read the books. Donna @ Girl Who Reads.

  2. I watched the series, but now that you mention it, I should check out at least one of his books.
