A favorite! When the James Herriot died I found the address of the family in the Atlanta Constitution and sent a sympathy card... I wasn't the only one. The books and DVD's are wonderful.
Great for cold winter days.
Have a brilliant day,

I read and reread all of James Herriot's books. They were so vivid and wonderful. Wanted to move there and be his assistant. I completely forgot that there was a television series! As soon as we finish Doc Martin, Season 5, you bet I will be ordering this series to watch next.

I was forced to watch on PBS as a child, back when there was one tv in the home and it only rec'd 12 channels. Years later, working in England I purchased ACGSmall to read as I was a bit homesick. Ironically the same book is next to me (25 years later) as I attempt to house train our new puppy. Loved the description of the ivy covered brik house with brass nameplate and black ironwork. A classic I read over & over. My dad was a New England farmer but he would have fit right in up there in the Dales of Yorkshire.

You continue to completely astonish me!

I read every single book James Herriot ever wrote! (not in college as an English Lit major!!) (I had to read something like 3 novels a week! Yikes!) at USC! (University of Southern California)

I devoured James Herriots's books way after college!

I am thrilled that there is film

I will try to find it!

He was a magical and gifted writer. I was "there"; when he was "delivering" an animal.......(as in birth!!!)

He was an inspiration to me to have "French chickens (with roosters!" in Pasadena; 22 years ago!

And when we moved to Montecito 16 years ago; we have them again!

I am going to watch the tv show that I never knew existed! I hope!!
