en Limba Engleză Paperback – 26 Oct 2000
Read about the life of Britain's most beloved vet, who charmed us all with his bestselling tales of veterinary life in Yorkshire.
After qualifying as a vet in 1939, Alf Wight, aka James Herriot, moved to a veterinary practice in Thirsk, Yorkshire.
It wasn't until he was over fifty when his first book of stories about life as a Yorkshire vet, If Only They Could Talk, was published, giving birth to some of Yorkshire's most famous and much-loved literary characters, and later becoming the popular BBC television series All Creatures Great and Small. Not only did his books have great success, but they also inspired many to take up the profession, in what was known as the 'Herriot effect'.
Although he brought fame and fortune to himself and those around him, he 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'.
