The first book by legendary vet James Herriot, set in 1930's Yorkshire.
When the newly qualified vet, James Herriot, arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, he has no idea of the new friends he will meet or adventures that lie ahead.
From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, this first volume of unforgettable memoirs chronicles James Herriot's first years as a country vet, with the signature storytelling magic that has made him a favourite the world over.
Here is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic of wild places and beautiful countryside.

I came upon this by accident after browsing the itunes store and having been enchanted by the popular tv series i decided to purchase this audiobook. I must say what a delight my purchase was, brilliantly written and superbly spoken by Christopher Timothy. Full of wit and humour, I can't wait to purchase the next one in the series. Would recommend it to all.
If only they could talk - James Herriot
I purchased this book after having bought an abridged version on cassette, narrated by James Herriot himself. I was pleased to have the fuller version. If only I - Tunes could release the authors version too, I would dearly love to replace the now worn out cassette recording. Any chance of a future release?.
