It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet Summary

It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet by James Herriot

New TV adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small now showing on Channel 5, featuring Sam West as Siegfried Farnon.

A special edition of It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet by James Herriot reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary.

Ensconced in the sleepy Yorkshire village of Darrowby, recently qualified vet James Herriot is acclimatizing to life with his unpredictable colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon. But veterinary practice in the 1930s was never going to be easy, and there are challenges on the horizon, from persuading his clients to let him use his 'modern' equipment, to becoming an uncle to a pig called Nugent. Throw in his first encounters with Helen, the beautiful daughter of a local farmer, and this year looks to be as eventful as the last . . .

Heart-breaking and hilarious in equal measure, It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet is James Herriot's brilliant memoir of life as a country vet and the story behind the much loved television series and film, All Creatures Great and Small.

About James Herriot

James Herriot, a pseudonym for James Alfred Wight, grew up in Glasgow and qualified as a veterinary surgeon at Glasgow Veterinary College. Shortly afterwards, he took up a position as an assistant in a North Yorkshire practice where he remained, with the exception of his wartime service in the RAF, until his death in 1995. He wrote many books about Yorkshire country life, including some for children, but he is best known for his memoirs, which begin with If Only They Could Talk. The books were televised in the enormously popular series All Creatures Great and Small.
