Drawing on his previously unpublished diaries, novels and case notes, Young Herriot tells the fascinating story of James Herriot’s formative years at veterinary college. It beautifully recreates an era when the veterinary profession is in the doldrums and veterinary practice is more black art than science, with a host of weird and wonderful concoctions in the place of today’s modern medicine.
