'Nicholas Ralph’s readings of Herriot’s stories are as comforting an experience as the show, and even more immersive.' —The Houston Chronicle

A tie-in to the PBS Masterpiece series and Christmas special, available on streaming and home video.

All Creatures Great and Small is first volume in the multimillion copy bestselling series. Delve into the magical, unforgettable world of James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian, and his menagerie of heartwarming, funny, and tragic animal patients.

For fifty years, generations of readers have flocked to Herriot's marvelous tales, deep love of life, and extraordinary storytelling abilities. For decades, Herriot roamed the remote, beautiful Yorkshire Dales, treating every patient that came his way from smallest to largest, and observing animals and humans alike with his keen, loving eye.

In All Creatures Great and Small, we meet the young Herriot as he takes up his calling and discovers that the realities of veterinary practice in rural Yorkshire are very different from the sterile setting of veterinary school.

James Herriot's memoirs have sold 80 million copies worldwide, and continue to delight and entertain listeners and readers of all ages.

Alternated laughing and crying! Nicholas Ralph did a great job reading so even though I have read the series a couple of times he brought new enjoyment to me.

I recently watched the PBS Masterpiece series "All Creatures Great and Small" and wanted to read the works which inspired them. When I saw this version narrated by Nicolas Ralph I was sold. This book is absolutely delightful. James Herriot brings the Yorkshire Dales, Skeldale House, his friends, patients, and the animals to life in a tender, heart-warming way. His writing style is so enjoyable. I've already downloaded the next one.
