No one is better poised to write the biography of James Herriot than the son who worked alongside him in the Yorkshire veterinary practice when Herriot became an internationally bestselling author. Now, in this warm and poignant memoir, Jim Wight talks about his father--the beloved veterinarian whom his family had to share with half the world. Alf Wight (aka James Herriot) grew up in Glasgow, where he lived during a happy rough-and-tumble childhood and then through the challenging years of training at the Glasgow Veterinary College. The story of how the young vet later traveled to the small Yorkshire town of Thirsk, aka Darrowby, to take the job of assistant vet is one that is well known through James Herriot's internationally celebrated books and the popular All Creatures Great and Small television series. But Jim Wight's biography ventures beyond the trials and tribulations of his father's life as a veterinarian to reveal the man behind the stories--the private individual who refused to allow fame and wealth to interfere with his practice or his family. With access to all of his father's papers, correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs--and intimate remembrances of all the farmers, locals, and friends who populate the James Herriot books--only Jim Wight could write this definitive biography of the man who was not only his father but his best friend. NOTE: This edition does not include a photo insert.

With James Herriot, Mitzi Brunsdale contributes the first full-length literary study of this beloved writer. Arguing that central to Herriot's writing is the morality underlying his seemingly simple tales, the book combines a lively writing style with a balanced critical appraisal to evaluate the writer's life and works. Organizing her material in 10 chapters, Brunsdale first presents an engaging biographical portrait of her subject and then discusses each of the works by category - Herriot's principal autobiographical collections, his series of children's books, the travel volume James Herriot's Yorkshire, and the films and tapes. Punctuating the analyses are telling, often wry comments gleaned from Herriot's interviews and observations from various critics and other contemporaries. "My books are a restatement of old values: hard work and integrity," James Herriot often remarked. In this study readers will come to appreciate the importance of that sentiment to all Herriot's efforts and, along the way, will be thoroughly entertained and informed. An excellent companion to courses in popular culture, James Herriot holds irresistible appeal for students, librarians, and general readers.
