James Herriot has now become firmly established and accepted as one of Darrowby's veterinarians. He's also married, and lives with his wife Helen on the top floor of Skeldale House. His former boss, now partner, Siegfried, lives downstairs with Siegfried's brother Tristan.

James continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters -- humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets -- all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. All all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot -- Christopher Timothy.

Praise for All Things Bright and Beautiful

"Whatever joy one found in [All Creatures Great and Small] is in [All Things Bright and Beautiful], only even more joyous; whatever laughter rippled from the throat in the reading of the first, finds even greater gusto in this one. It is funny, wry, simple in its story but as deep and perceptive of life's truths as the superlative sensitivity of the write and his talent can make it." --Dorothy Eastland, The Hartford Courant

"Christopher Timothy conveys his relish for the countryside and country folk, not to mention
animals.... Herriot’s generous nature and honest concern coupled with Timothy’s friendly style are a winning combination." --AudioFile
