The seventh instalment in James Herriot's memoirs. When World War II ends and James Herriot returns to his wife and new family in the English countryside, he dreams mostly of Sunday roasts and Yorkshire puddings, but new adventure has a way of tracking him down. Soon Herriot finds himself escorting a large number of sheep on a steamer to Russia, puzzling through the trials of fatherhood, and finding creative ways to earn the trust of suspicious neighbours who rely on him for the wellbeing of their beloved animals.
Good condition but with some wear. There is spotted foxing to the pages' fore-edge and top edge, and some light fading to the wrapper's spine. The binding is a little weakened at the beginning of the book but still secure. Otherwise, a sound copy.Sold
