James Herriot – All Things Wise and Wonderful


In this third enchanting collection of stories, James Herriot, the world’s most beloved veterinarian, picks up where All Things Bright and Beautiful left off: World War II has begun, and James has been inducted into the RAF. We see him at training camp and we go back with him to Yorkshire – on real trips as he breaks away to see Helen, who is about to have a baby, and on trips of reverie as he recalls the dales, the animals, and the Yorkshire people who have so enriched his life.

We meet old friends again – his partner Siegfried, the zany Tristan, the bon vivant Granville Bennett – and scores of new folk, each with a story to tell. James Herriot is back and, as one reviewer said of his work, “If ever you have loved a friend, human or otherwise, these stories are for you.”

Where do I begin?!?! James Herriot’s words and experiences are brought to vivid life by the flawless and brilliant narration of Christopher Timothy! I have never been so captivated! Timothy’s spot-on vocals left me awestruck- he truly captures Herriot’s sharp wit and genuine love of all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful!
