Description
James Herriot, one of the best-known contemporary British authors, is known for his autobiographical, semi-fictional stories of the life of a veterinarian in the dales of Yorkshire in the 1930s through the 1950s, as well as his children's versions of these animal stories. With book sales in the millions, he is a major figure in the popular culture of our time. In this text, Mitzi Brunsdale traces James Herriot's life and works. Written in a serious yet easy-to-read style, she mixes this biography with 20th-century British history and an overview of the history and people of Yorkshire. This comprehensive study covers Herriot's five autobiographical books, his children's books, and film and television renditions of his works.
