Now, in this warm and poignant memoir, Jim Wight talks about his father—the beloved veterinarian whom his family had to share with half the world.

This is a beloved book. A beloved book, and almost every literate person over the age of 55 has either read this, or its predecessor, All Creatures Great and Small. In fact, almost every veterinarian I've ever met will cite this book, or Herriot's first book or more likely all of Herriot's books as their original inspiration to pursue the veterinary sciences. I can think of MANY readers of my acquaintance, especially my friends in the horse world, who would be riveted by this read.

I just wasn't one of them. My first problem, which hit me right in the face, almost as soon as I started reading, was Herriot's excessive use of dialect.
