James Herriot's final work and last in his beloved series of animal stories This fifth and final of James Herriot's heartwarming story collections brings back familiar friends (including old favorites such as Tricki Woo) and introduces new ones, including Herriot's children Rosie and Jimmy and the marvelously eccentric vet Calum Buchanan. As James grows older, he finds that change comes even to his beloved Yorkshire---but not necessarily bad, as he watches his own two children come to share and participate in his deep love of the animal world. Herriot's last memoir, "Every Living Thing" is a truly heartwarming read, burstingly full of his deep joy in life, sense of humor, and appreciation of the world around him.… (més)

The fifth book in the series, Herriot is still running his Yorkshire veterinary practice along with Siegfried. Tristam has left to start his own practice and has been replaced by other young vets, eventually by Calum. Upon moving into the upstairs flat, this new vet quickly acquires his own menagerie of badgers, dogs, foxes, and even an owl, leading to more outbursts from Siegfried.
James and Helen need to find a more modern house but get outbid at every turn, and James befriends an old man and his cat who have set up their tent along the road.
Funny and gentle despite the graphic depictions of veterinary emergencies, I'd like to read the whole series. ( )

A few years ago I stayed in a wonderful B&B in Thirsk, Yorkshire that was also an animal refuge. I went up to the World of James Herriot and spent a fabulous few hours wandering through their interesting collection of the life of a Yorkshire veterinarian. Therefore, I was happy to come across another one of his books.
It's a series of vignettes about the people of the area and their animals. Often funny but never malicious, Mr. Wight imbues his neighbors and friends with a compassionate and poignant view of their lives. Most are farmers, living a hard life in the Dales, but the stories are so well written and truly takes the reader away.
It's a lovely area and I was happy to indulge in views of the Yorkshire countryside once more. ( )

I am reading James Herriot's well-known series of books out of order. The five books are about his life as a veterinarian, mostly of large animals such as cows and sheep, in England. EVERY LIVING THING is the last book in the series. I read the third book in the series first and loved it so much that I grabbed EVERY LIVING THING when I found it on the shelf in a used bookstore. This book, too, is wonderful.

Each chapter of the books in this series contains a separate incident, an example from Herriot’s everyday life. Although I do not normally care for books of short stories, in the case of this series, the stories are at least in chronological order and they are so touching they’ll make you wish you could hug Herriot.

The stories in EVERY LIVING THING took place during the 1950s. Happily, by this time, antibiotics and other new drugs were now being produced. So veterinary medicine was more advanced by this time than it was in the earlier books in his series, and Herriot continued to learn. Also, his assistants, new veterinarians just out of college, knew more than he did when he graduated from college, also helpful to his practice.

Although EVERY LIVING THING is the last book in the series, Herriot, thankfully, does not end it with the end of his career. That would have been too sad. ( )

Színes és sokrétű, mint az élet maga. Sok humorral és még több emberséggel megírt történetek a 20. századból. Okosan tanító és a lényeget mutató töredékek egy állatorvos mindennapjaiból. Szeretetre méltó vagy elgondolkodtató figurák. Remek érzés volt estéről estére belefeledkezni. ( )

I got a hard bound copy of this for $1 at the Agoura Library book sale today. The sale is every Saturday from 10-4 in the basement. Lots of books and great deals! Most paperbacks are .50, and you can even request books that they'll set aside for you from incoming donations. ( )

I am never at my best in the early morning, especially the cold mornings you get in the Yorkshire spring when a piercing March wind sweeps down from the fells, finding its way inside clothing, nipping at noses and ears.
