Al and enlightening such as Herriot's recollections of poor farmers who will scrape their meager earnings together to be able to get proper care for their working animals From seeing to his patients in the depths of winter on the remotest homesteads to dealing with uncooperative owners and critically ill animals Herriot discovers the wondrous variety and never ending challenges of veterinary practice as his humor compassion and love of the animal world shine forthJames Herriot's memoirs have sold million copies worldwide and continue to delight and entertain readers of all ages All Creatures Great and Small is one of the funniest books I ve read in my life with humor that I think would appeal to a wide audience I usually steer clear of animal themed stories because they tend to be maudlin but All Creatures Great and Small isn t that kind of animal book Herriot wrote about his most memorable strange adventures as a large animal veterinarian who visited various farms to handle all manner of cases at all hours of day and night I knew absolutely nothing about large animal veterinarianism before reading this book it wasn t something I gave much if any thought to What I learned is that the profession is challenging obviously for the actual work but also exhausting because of the hours Creatures don t always give birth at convenient times If a cow is giving birth at the ungodly hour of 300 AM the veterinarian can t exactly ask her to wait until a better time I read this many years before joining Goodreads but I still remember one of the most memorable and hilarious accounts involved Herriot reaching far into a pig s vagina to help deliver her piglets As if that isn t bad enough one of the piglets kept biting his hand with its needle teeth This is such a bizarre but needed profession I suggest recounting such anecdotes in detail to all children who dreamily claim they want to be vets when they grow up Books containing great humor endear themselves to me almost immediately and this gem holds a special place in my heart I wish writers wrote humor like Herriot did
