'We had antibiotics, few drugs. A lot of time was spent pouring things down cows' throats. The whole thing added up to a lot of laughs. There's more science w, but t so many laughs'. We all kw James Herriot, possibly the most famous vet in the world. But how did a young student named Alf Wight become the man who would charm millions of readers the world over? Young Herriot tells the fascinating story of James Herriot's formative years at veterinary college. Set in Glasgow in the 1930s - pre-antibiotics, when veterinary practice was, as Herriot wrote, 'more art than science' - the book shines a light on his calling to work with animals (which began when he read an article in Mecca Magazine entitled 'Veterinary Surgery as a Career'), his early friendships and quest for kwledge at Glasgow's Veterinary College and the early development of his legendary compassion for animals. Accompanying a major BBC drama series, Young Herriot uses previously unpublished diaries and casebooks from Herriot's days as a student to bring to life a fascinating time and place, and represents a thrilling new addition to the James Herriot can.
