I got a hard bound copy of this for $1 at the Agoura Library book sale today. The sale is every Saturday from 10-4 in the basement. Lots of books and great deals! Most paperbacks are .50, and you can even request books that they'll set aside for you from incoming donations. ( )

Well, I've been thinking about Herriot's books for decades, ever since I first read them. Finally had an opportunity to fit one into a group challenge. I'm not sure I ever did read this one before or not, but in any case I did enjoy it just as much as I hoped that I would. Such quick, sweet stories, with a fair bit of educational value, too. Ok, so maybe much of what I learned could only be used to win more games of Trivial Pursuit (t), but it's still interesting stuff. ( )

Oh, how I loved this book! I laughed until I cried when I read his experience with the introduction of artificial insemination in cattle. This was a poignant story, in many ways, as it showed the original trio of James, Sigfried and Tristan had grown up and moved on with their adult lives. A wonderful conclusion to the series. As always, James Herriot brought me to laughter and tears in the same book. This is a must-read for any animal lover. I also enjoyed the audio book. There aren't too many books I want to read/hear more than once, but I return to James Herriot over and over. ( )

Not quite up to the same level as Herriot's first four books — which still places it miles above many other books! ( )

Epigraph
Be fruitful and multiple, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over all the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Dedication
To my revered and elderly friends, Polly and Bodie
First words
I am never at my best in the early morning, especially the cold mornings you get in the Yorkshire spring when a piercing March wind sweeps down from the fells, finding its way inside clothing, nipping at noses and ears.
