This synopsis report prepared by Alexandra Cossaboom
This is the start to one of the most famous series of all time - James Herriot's books about his life as a veterinarian in Northern England. All Creatures Great and Small begins with Herriot getting a job as assistant to a rather unusual vet, Siegfried Farnon, and goes through his early years as a working vet with a varied practice - both large and small animals. Though the stories are far from momentous, they are wise, witty, and wonderful; there's a good reason millions of people love these books.
