'This collection gives listeners a peek into Herriot’s life, tracing parallels between his time on rural homesteads and his well-loved tales, and inviting listeners to sit back, relax and reminisce about more peaceful times.'—BookPage

This audiobook is read by Nicholas Ralph and Anna Madeley, stars of the PBS Masterpiece television series All Creatures Great and Small. The audiobook also includes an introduction read by the author's daughter Rosie Page.

James Herriot's timeless, heartwarming, and perceptive stories about animals and people have charmed millions of listeners around the world, and millions more have watched the popular PBS series All Creatures Great and Small, which is based on his four books. The Wonderful World of James Herriot excerpts the best of his stories to shape the larger tale of his life, his family, and his world, including a special introduction written by his two children, Rosie Page and Jim Wight.

With astute observations and boundless humor, Herriot captures the spirit of the Yorkshire Dales and of rural communities on the cusp of change, before tractors and machines had taken over and modern medicines and antibiotics transformed veterinary work. Herriot's unforgettable portraits of farm animals and the people he served as a country veterinarian are moving, dramatic, warm, touching, and profound. This beautiful book is the perfect gift for Herriot listeners of all ages.
