Star of Channel 5's television series The Yorkshire Vet, Julian Norton has written a warm, evocative and often funny memoir of his life and the huge variety of animals and people he has met along the way.

From his childhood love of animals, through his training and first steps in the profession and the pressures and challenges faced by vets, dealing with unexpected exotic pets - and handling excitable humans too - Julian has seen all sides of the veterinary world and writes about it all with humour and affection. Just as happy calving a cow, treating a dehydrated chameleon or tending to the overgrown teeth of a rabbit, his passion for his work shines through on every page, as does his love for Yorkshire.

Published 100 years after the birth of James Herriott, and with a foreword by Herriott's son Jim Wight, Julian's story is sometimes sad, often funny and always warm and compassionate, bringing to life the world of the working vet and the highs and lows he and his colleagues face on a daily basis.
