All Creatures Great and Small


From the publisher:

In All Creatures Great and Small, we meet the young James 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. Some visits are heart-wrenchingly difficult, , some are lighthearted and fun, , and yet others are inspirational and enlightening., From seeing to his patients in the depths of winter on the remotest homesteads to dealing with uncooperative owners and critically ill animals, Herriot discovers the wondrous variety and never-ending challenges of veterinary practice as his humor, compassion, and love of the animal world shine forth.

Memoria Press recommends All Creatures Great and Small as a summer reading supplement to our Ninth Grade Classical Core Curriculum. Read during the summer before Tenth Grade.
