Hensfield is a dreary, dark mill town, and the vet he is covering for generally works on animals for poor owners, for low pay. it seems each time he enters a new adventure in the RAF his mind wanders off to the hills and dales of his home county. One of the sons in the family can’t tolerate the sight of blood, and knocks James out by accidentally hitting him in the head.

More hilarious stories about crazy and cute animals with strange personalities, as well as the quirky people James Herriot met through work, as well as those who he lived with. All Things Wise and Wonderful is the third James Herriot omnibus and contains Vets Might Fly and Vet in a Spin.James gives him some pills but that doesn’t work and James realizes the dog has Hodgkin’s disease. But since he never gives details about the condition, when I read the biography that his son wrote about his life, I was surprised to see what he had dealt with for so long.

Therefore, if All Things Wise and Wonderful is read by children (and older children above the age of ten or eleven do indeed often read James Herriot) this and a few other similarly problematic storylines might well need to be discussed, as there could be a few uncomfortable questions that arise. He feels that he needs to better the lives of the animals in his area, and purposeful injury makes him especially upset. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Wise and Wonderful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.Times are especially hard for Herriot right now, since his wife is almost ready to deliver their baby, back home.

But one of the horses of such a client is choking while Herriot is there, and he realizes it’s an allergic reaction, and cures the horse with one shot. James Herriot’s stories are funny, heartwarming, and heartbreaking as he introduces both familiar and old faces and their animals in need.Daggett doesn’t like the fact that Ned stays at the pub until ten o’clock and doesn’t get up until seven some days.

Most of his experiences in RAF training led him to reflect further on cases from his veterinary practice, so there are plenty of animal stories and, more than that, stories about the people who raise and care for those their alternating highs and lows, humour and pathos, and gripping anecdotes about delivering lambs, grumpy farmers, hypochondriac pet-owners, stroppy cows and blunt Yorkshire characters. review: All Things Wise and Wonderful is James Herriot’s third book recounting his adventures as a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. Just like "Great and Small", this is a delightful, beautifully written book which I found very hard to put down. Anyway, the condition was responsible for Wight/Herriot leaving the Air Force much earlier than he expected, and we end the book back where we belong, getting off the bus in Darrowby, ready to start normal life again.
