Millions of readers have delighted in the wonderful storytelling and everyday miracles of James Herriot in the fifty years since his animal stories were first introduced to the world.

All Things Bright and Beautiful is the beloved sequel to Herriot's first collection, All Creatures Great and Small, and picks up as Herriot, now newly married, journeys among the remote hillside farms and valley towns of the Yorkshire Dales, caring for their inhabitants—both two- and four-legged. Throughout, Herriot's deep compassion, humor, and love of life shine as we laugh, cry, and delight in the portraits of his many varied animal patients and their equally varied owners.

I love all the James Herriot books. They are so interesting, funny and heartwarming. My favorite though, are the collection of cat stories and dog stories. I listened to them a few years ago and you will laugh and cry. They are such touching stories. This book contains one of the dog stories that made me cry all over again. I highly recommend this and all his books.

I have loved James Herriot for many years. I've read all the books multiple times, watched the entire series every year for the past five years, but there is something special about Timothy Christopher's reading that warms my heart. I have to be careful while driving and listening; this narration causes me laugh so hard I have to pull over, or makes me cry until I can't see the road. What a joy!

Excellent narrator, takes you right into the Yorkshire Dales and you feel like your watching in on the scene. Love the subtle humour and entertaining anecdotes.

Bronwyn Being a vet myself it is lovely to hear how veterinary medicine was managed in the prewar period. It was also fun to try and diagnose the problems. Well written and narrated. A wonderful glimpse of life in the Yorkshire dales
