An Excellent and Entertaining Read with Compassion
September 15, 2017
I had just completed reading this well written and compassionate book. This is the last book written by Alf Wight. I have read most of James Herriot’s books and even though they were written many years ago when veterinary surgery was in the midst of undergoing changes as modern drugs become available and the vet’s knowledge of palpating his/her animal patients still remains a vital part of veterinary practice to this day. This final book is an excellent read and each chapter is a complete story in itself. One can put the book down and return to it without the chapter ending on a cliff hanger. Each chapter is a gem in itself. James (to use his pseudonym) illustrates great compassion for his clients and their pets. His understanding and dealing with distressed pet owners and their ailing pets is a common denominator in every chapter of this book. Not only does he have incredible patience in dealing with distraught animal owners, he illustrates his love and devotion to his patients under his care. He pays house calls to follow the progress of his patients under his care without even being called in. In his later years, he became more involved in small animal care, while his practice also involved treating large farm animals such as horses, cows, pigs and sheep. James Herriot books are ageless and one can enjoy them even many years after they were written. The anecdotes in each chapter make for interesting reading and the fact that he writes in the first person gives the reader the feeling that the writer is talking to the reader and sharing his emotions with him/her. I recommend this book to all those who share a great love for animals and their well-being as well as for those who share a common humanity.
Too much stress? Read a James Herriot book.

The worst thing about reading Every Living Thing was coming to the end of it. This is a perfect book for anyone stressed by their work, the politics and news of the day, or any other cause. The last book of the “All Creatures Great and Small” series, it includes stories of a veterinarian’s life after World War II and into the 1960s. Sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, always interesting, the book is a series of sketches of a way of rural life that no longer exists; slower than today, filled with hard work and few luxuries. I heartily recommend this book.
The one James Herriot book I hadn’t read
November 27, 2021
I recently read James Wight”s biography of his dad, Alf Wight aka James Herriot. I found this book and realized I had not read it. Every Living Thing is as delightful as the other 4 books. The best parts were centered on Calum Buchanan, the vet wit’ the badger. This bit fascinated me because I thought badgers were fierce and aggressive animals. I doubted the would make decent pets. If Calum indeed had a badger, then I am wrong!
This book is pivotal in seeing the transition from treating farm livestock to small animals, primarily pets. Spaying and neutering dogs and cats eventually outweighed calving and lambing.
It’s a charming book and you’ll fall in love with the Yorkshire Dales again.

Fantastic read ! During the pandemic, I have retreated to more pleasant novels and subject matter. No murder mysteries for me or daily news of the Afghanistan debacle. The memoirs of James Herriot take one to the tranquility of the Yorkshire Dales in the ’30s. The recent PBS series of All Creatures Great and Small inspired me to read ALL the James Herriot books until I’ve consumed every last word. Some I must find through alternate sellers, but it is worth the wait for longer shipping than I would otherwise get from prime. Ahhh, Dr. Herriot…take me away.

Mr Herriot has a way of writing that makes you want to go to Yorkshire and ride his rounds with him. I love animals and you could tell he did too. This is the second time I have read these books. They make me have a lovely, Happy feeling. Sometimes a story would make me laugh out loud and sometimes they would make me cry. I am so glad I have the e-books and can capture this feeling whenever I want. I hope you’ll read them and enjoy the books as much as I do. Happy Reading!

As before , a riveting read.

I have enjoyed this series some years ago. Long enough that most of it was fresh and new again. On several occasions the writings brought tears to my eyes. I ran a cattle farm for about ten years, and many of the things James went through were very familiar to me. Calving time and dealing with scoures. Prolapse uterus was the worst. But the end, with the cats hit home the hardest. Over the years, we have had several stray kittens adopt us. One retained her desire for the wild and got away from time to time. The last escape she was the for weeks and never recovered after that trip and only lasted about three more weeks. The loss of a fur baby is a loss of a family member.
