The world's most beloved animal doctor delightfully continues where he left off in "All Creatures Great and Small" with new adventures through the Yorkshire dales -- and a whole new menagerie of memorable patients. Young James, now married and working as a small-town vet, encounters a cast of extraordinary characters as he makes his way through the Yorkshire countryside tending to sick cattle, pregnant ewes, ailing dogs -- and their eccentric owners. As always, Herriot's warmth, humor, and singular view of life make us laugh and cry, as we marvel at the everyday miracles he creates.
