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.
