Publisher's Summary

Evocative, funny and poignant, this is the third volume of memoirs from James Herriot who inspired the television series All Creatures Great and Small.

Training as an RAF pilot in the smoke and bustle of wartime London is a far cry from James Herriot’s day job as a country vet in the Yorkshire Dales. And whilst he is keen to serve King and country, James cannot help but miss his life in Darrowby – despite frequent arguments between his colleagues Siegfried and Tristan, bad-tempered cattle, opinionated farmers and the continuing saga of Cedric the flatulent dog. But most of all he misses his wife Helen; pregnant with their first child. The question constantly hanging over them is – will he be going to war? And when will he get to go home?

Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Wise and Wonderful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.

Marvellous performance!

I knew the books so I knew what to expect as far as the story goes but the performance here is just superb! It was in the first two audiobooks read by Nicholas Ralph too. He has a good voice and diction and he can make other voices and accents sound so natural, it is a rare skill. Thank you!

Outstanding narration of a classic!

As per the previous titles in this wonderful Herriot series narrated by Nicholas Ralph. This continuation is s-u-p-e-r-b-l-y narrated by Mr Ralph (no wonder that his Herriot audio versions have been award nominated).👍🏻
Definitely worth the credits for this series narrated by Mr Ralph. Such wonderfully immersive hours of audio pleasure.

Brilliant

Unable to stop listening. Totally immersed in this book, more so than the previous one - found myself switching from laughing out loud, to holding my breath in anticipation. Nicholas Ralph brilliantly brings the characters to life. Can’t wait for the 4th in this series. More TV series too please!

Superb story-telling with outstanding narration

I really enjoy returning to these stories time and time again. Herriot wrote with such warmth and humility. By the time you reach the end of a book, you've experienced nearly every emotion possible.
Nicholas Ralph has already narrated the previous two books in the series. Every time, he just smashes it! His ability to give each character a unique voice is amazing. I've listened to quite a lot of audio books and Ralph is easily my favourite narrator by far.
Highly recommended.

Great Listening

After having listened to and thoroughly enjoyed the previous 2 James Herriot books narrated by Nicholas Ralph, I was delighted there was a 3rd. Was not disappointed - absolutely loved it!
