Présentation de l'éditeur

After qualifying as a vet in 1939, Alf Wight, aka James Herriot, moved to a veterinary practice in Thirsk. He was over fifty when his first book of stories about life as a Yorkshire vet was published, giving birth to some of Yorkshire's most famous and much-loved literary characters. Although he brought fame and fortune to himself and those around him, Alf Wight remained an intensely private person, respected and trusted by those whose animals he cared for, and adored by millions of fans. This illuminating biography reveals the real man behind the title 'The World's Most Famous Vet'.

Biographie de l'auteur

JIM WIGHT took time out from the veterinary practice in Thirsk, where he worked with his father for many years, in order to write and then publicise this book. He lives just outside Thirsk in North Yorkshire.

I've been a fan of James Herriot for as long as I can remember, and his books have been so well read over the years that they have become worn and tattered (so much so, in fact, that I recently re-ordered the entire collection). I was excited to read this autobiography and finally learn some facts behind the country vet.

This is an interesting and heartwarming account of everything from Herriot's childhood to his death, and I found it a very enjoyable read. I definitely recommend it to others who are fans of this world famous vet. There are some interesting revelations about Herriot's time training to be a vet, as well as his journey to become a published author. I'd always imagined that Herriot's books had been an instant success, but the truth is in fact a much longer and testing journey which really shows his determination and strength of will.

-James Herriot was a country animal doctor who recanted his life into stories, which became All Creatures Great and Small and other books and audios. His son, Jim Wight, upon his father's death, composed a tribute to a man we all thought we knew in The Real James Herriot. The abridged audio version is narrated by TV's James Herriot, actor Christopher Timothy. His familiar tramping of the characters and Herriot's words makes him the perfect choice to read this veneration.

This biography, written by James Herriot's son, also named James, is excellent. Since I have always been an avid fan of all the books written by his father, I see a lot of talented writing in his namesake. He is his Father's son, for sure. This is a recap of James Herriot's life with many added details that any lover of the books will enormously enjoy. I actually was fortunate enough to go to Skeldale House and had the privilege of seeing his dad and talking for a brief moment with him. It is one of the most wonderful memories that I have. You will not go wrong buying this book, just left with a terrible sense of loss that there will be no more "vit'nery" stories from James Herriot, but with good fortune, I hope his son will follow in his dad's footsteps and keep the wonderful heritage alive.

Fascinating. Makes you appreciate his books so much now that you know how human he was and how many hardships he had to endure.
