The Real James Herriot
A Memoir of My FatherLarge Print - 1999
The story of how young vet Alf Wight (aka James Herriot) traveled from Glasgow to the small Yorkshire town of Thirsk (aka Darrowby) to take the job of assistant vet, is one that is well known through his internationally celebrated books. Now this warm and poignant memoir ventures beyond All Creatures Great and Small to reveal the man behind the stories -- the private individual who refused to allow fame and wealth to interfere with his practice or his family. Only Jim Wight could write this definitive biography of the man who was his father, his colleague, and his best friend.
