Set in Glasgow in the 1930s, Young James Herriot is the fascinating story of Herriot's formative years at veterinary college, recounting the tales behind his calling to work with animals and his early friendships. With no modern drugs, and a lot of trial-and-error, James sets about learning how to treat the local farm animals and the pets of city folk. Accompanied by a cast of eccentric professors and an ensemble of aspiring veterinarians, this book reveals a world now lost to us, showing how life in pre-war Britain changed an enthusiastic young student named Alf Wight into the man who would charm millions of readers the world over.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A delightful dollop of nostalgia and a reminder of the joy of Herriot's antics." * Daily Mail *
"Admirers of Herriot's best-selling novels will find much to enjoy here." * Choice *
"A fascinating look at Herriot's childhood and student days." -- Shari Low * Daily Record *
"Herriot learnt his trade when animal medicine was a profession that 'trialed the faint miasma of witchcraft' about it. It's that hint of magic that made Herriot so famous." * The Lady *
