James Herriot's final work and last in his beloved series of animal stories
This fifth and final of James Herriot's heartwarming story collections brings back familiar friends (including old favorites such as Tricki Woo) and introduces new ones, including Herriot's children Rosie and Jimmy and the marvelously eccentric vet Calum Buchanan.
As James grows older, he finds that change comes even to his beloved Yorkshire---but not necessarily bad, as he watches his own two children come to share and participate in his deep love of the animal world. Herriot's last memoir, Every Living Thing is a truly heartwarming read, burstingly full of his deep joy in life, sense of humor, and appreciation of the world around him.

James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, and The Lord God Made Them All. At age 23, Herriot qualified for veterinary practice with the Glasgow Veterinary College, and moved to the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire to work in a rural practice. He would live in, work in, and write about the region for the rest of his life. Though he dreamed for years of writing a book, his veterinary work and his family kept him busy, and he did not start writing until the age of 50. In 1979, he was awarded the title Order of the British Empire (OBE). His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.From AudioFile:
With this collection of short stories, the listener can enjoy anecdotes about Herriot's life as a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. Christopher Timothy characterizes Herriot--a hard-working veterinarian dedi-cated to his work--with an amiable tone. His voice shows genuine concern when telling of a particularly difficult case and elation when a treatment is successful. The program also has a lighter side, and Timothy's straight-faced tone complements the subtle humor. The unique character of the Yorkshire countryside is of great importance to the success of the program; Timothy adeptly creates the accents of the Yorkshire villagers and farmers. His award-winning talents and experience portraying James Herriot for British television make his performance thoroughly captivating. M.P.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
