    If all of All Creatures Great and Small and Every Living Thing is not enough for you in essence if you are a James Herriot junky I've got just the book for you James Herriot's Yorkshire A Guided Tour Through the Beloved Land of All Creatures Great and Small is what you want Herein the author of all those wondrously delightful tales about the life of a country vet in approximately 1940s Yorkshire England takes his fans on a walkabout tour of the Dales where he once practiced This is an oldish book now and so the pictures have a dated look about them yet still it's a joy to see and hear described these locations some of which appeared in the books and television show My wife and I spent our honeymoon in England and for a few days we drove about Yorkshire She was interested in the Harry Potter film locations I found for her while I was keen on locating places like The Wensleydale Heifer a massive tavern now a boutiue hotel where Herriot and his wife would go for drinks or a bite to eat This pic of the Wensleydale Heifer looks nothing like the rustic homesteady type place I visited and is a far cry from what Herriot knew Looks like they've really gone over it with heaps of cashNo it's not for everyone but this book will be of great interest to a certain kind of person

    Very nice coffee table book showing the parts of the Yorkshire dales in the All Creatures Great and Small series

    I was a bit disappointed in the very dated photographs that didn't do justice to this beautiful part of Britain but we visited in the Spring when the fields were full of adorable lambs and bright yellow rape while the hills were emerald green No doubt we were seeing it at its best Nevertheless I enjoyed seeing Yorkshire again through Herriot's eyes and expert writing

    This beautifully photographed book prompted me to spent a week discovering Yorkshire about twenty years ago The book came with me Yorkshire was even beautiful than the book had promised rolling dales becks sheep everywhere wild moors cobbled market towns wonderful food and drink Our brakes failed on a steep hill and we were forced to take refuge in a pub in a tiny village for hours while the mechanic fixed our car; that was how we found the best beer in Yorkshire and the best sandwiches in the world It was hard for me to pull myself away from Yorkshire and head back to London and eventually back to Canada I'd go back in a heartbeat The book isn't just for people who loved Herriot's books or the TV show though it helps The scenery and historic buildings in it are worth looking at on their own and the book is a great guide to Yorkshire although it doesn't have maps

    A friend lent me this book when I slept over and I very much hope I've given it back to her if not super sorry Zion I warned you Anyway this is pretty It's so pastoral and natural almost magical in the most British way It makes me want to travel there and see it for myself Admittedly I read this during guard duty and it provided some much needed escape If I had other books near me that weren't very difficult philosophy books I'm not sure I would have been able to finish it

    If you loved this series the way that I do I even have the entire DVD set of the BBC series this book is awesome As it shows some of the areas that Mr Herriot talks about in the series What a terrific man who led a terrifically wonderful life

    Just the thing for a walking tour of the Yorkshire Dales I've actually driven through there That part hadn't changed much after several decades
