A very special slip-sleeve edition of three of our most memorable Herriot titles: James Herriot’s Animal Stories, James Herriot’s Cat Stories, and James Herriot’s Favorite Dog Stories
The James Herriot books recordings have always been among our steadiest bestselling titles. And it’s no surprise, for there is a sense of wonder that suffuses the words and images of this great and gentle author. In an age that tends too often to lose itself in pursuit of superficial goals, the works of James Herriot bring us a blend of grounded earthiness, reality, and joy that transcends our moments of cynicism and restores our ability to experience life, love, and awe.
James Herriot’s Animal Stories offers ten tales of the good doctor’s adventures and misadventures with lambs, cattle, piglets, puppies, and the rough-spoken farmers and soft-spoken gentry who try to hold sway over nature.
James Herriot’s Cat Stories presents the wonderful people of Yorkshire and their kittens and cats: cats of farmers, merchants, and matrons; cats with definite social graces; and cats with wild, untamed natures. There are even some cats who became cherished parts of the life of the Herriot family.
James Herriot’s Favorite Dog Stories gifts us with golden retrievers and sheepdogs, beagles and dachshunds, purebreds and crossbreeds, and just plain mutts—and, of course, Mrs. Pumphrey’s memorable Pekingese, Tricki Woo.
