Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

These warm and charming remembrances of an English country veterinarian are framed with wit and alacrity by author Herriot and reader Christopher Timothy, who played the vet on the long-running BBC series. The uncluttered audio track allows strong verbal pictures to develop, cozy and nostalgic as Christmas in Yorkshire. This storytelling is observant, revealing, and entertaining--there's no skimping on local color or even medical procedures, some of which may put off squeamish listeners. The stoic folk--thick accents and all--and quirky animals to whom Herriot ministers will be welcome visitors to your ears and mind in this ten-story collection. D.J.B.
