Summary:

The fifth and final volume of James Herriot's bestselling series of animal stories now available in unabridged CD format for the first time. Herriot's heartwarming story collections brings back familiar friends (including old favorites such as Tricki Woo) and introduces new ones, including Herriot's children Rosie and Jimmy and the marvelously eccentric Calum Buchanan. These programs provide a perfect opportunity for existing fans of Herriot's work to reacquaint themselves with his writing, and for those who've never read him to hear what generations of animal lovers have already discovered: James Herriot is that rarest of creatures, a genuine master storyteller.

    Perhaps I am spoiled by the previous three books but there is an element to this book that is missing. The quirkiness of life on the Dales is gone. No more Tristan, very little Sigfreid, trucks replace horses, conversations with farmers are replaced by worries about houses and mortgages. It is just life, isn't it? Dr. Herriot grew up and I long for the younger man. But everything gets older, so this is the natural progression. That being said, it is still filled with good stories and the reader is absolutely perfect.

    A wonderful read or listen. I think better read, because of the frequent stops to explain the differant pronouncations and uses of the terms i.e. boot, but none the less, a wonderful book full of warmth, love, and humor
