Woven in with his sometimes harrowing Vet practice events is the story of his quest to be an RAF pilot.

So many beautiful landscapes are included with all of the farmer characters and the loving animals he saved. ( )

"There's more to be learned up a cow's arse than in many an encyclopedia" - Siegfried Farnon. This installment sees our James acting almost as a zoological Sherlock Holmes, even tangling with a corrupt dog track operation! ( )

In this book, veterinarian James Herriot is training for the RAF (Royal Air Force) during WWII. So, this one includes stories of that training, alongside stories of treating animals (pets and farm animals) and the lives of some of the humans to whom those animals belonged.

I listened to the audio, and there were times my mind wandered, probably more often during the RAF training anecdotes (though not all of them). The narrator did a very good job with voices and accents. I’m rating it good, but am debating if I should continue on. It looks like there are only two books left, so I likely will. ( )

Epigraph
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Cecil Frances Alexander 1818-1895
Dedication
To my dogs, Hector and Dan. Faithful companions of the daily round.
First words
'Move!' bawled the drill corporal. 'Come on, speed it up!' He sprinted effortlessly to the rear of the gasping, panting column of men and urged us on from there.
