All Creatures Great and Small (1972)
Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "The publishers call it 'a miracle', not too strong a word for a book that offers something for everyone - gusto, homor, pathos, information, romance, insight, style. It is vicarious living with one of the happiest and most admirable of people...Many more famous authors could work for a lifetime and not achieve more flawless literary control than this unknown vet has in his first book...But if living well is even more difficult than writing well, his character and temperament are more miraculous than his style...The whole book, in both its funniest and most tragic episodes, expresses a joyous and affectionate acceptance of life, animal and human!" Chicago Tribune Book World
  • "Perhaps once in a decade a book like this comes along. It's a simple tale, the memoir of a Scottish veterinarian who began his practice in the Yorkshire counrtyside in the thirties...told with such pathos, humor and warmth. It's a beautiful book." George Hecht, President, Doubleday Book Shops
