Cameron Stewart reads the absorbing story of the early years of much-loved vet and author James Herriot, written by John Lewis-Stempel. We all know James Herriot, the author of the legendary 'All Creatures Great and Small', but how did a young student named Alf Wight become the man who won the hearts of readers the world over? In 'Young James', John Lewis-Stempel tells the story of Herriot's formative years in Glasgow and the work at the veterinary college that began his career. Based on Wight's college diaries and case notes, as well as original research into the history of the time, 'Young James' brings to life the bygone era of veterinary medicine during the 1930s - the 'good old bad old days' before antibiotics - as well as Wight's personal experiences when faced with the curriculum and the teaching regime at Glasgow Veterinary College. Accompanying a major BBC drama series, 'Young Herriot' is a stunning addition to the James Herriot canon - a richly nostalgic tale of one ordinary boy's journey to become an extraordinary world-famous vet and writer.
