From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, Let Sleeping Vets Lie is the third volume of James Herriot's classic memoirs; a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic and beauty of Britain’s wild places.

With two years experience behind him, James Herriot still feels privileged working on the beautiful Yorkshire moors as assistant vet at the Darrowby practice. Time to meet yet more unwilling patients and a rich cast of supporting owners.

Full of hilarious tales of his unpredictable boss Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, the joys of spring lambing, a vicious cat called Boris and James' jinxed courtship of the lovely Helen, Let Sleeping Vets Lie is sure to delight hardened fans and new readers of James Herriot titles alike.

He can tell a good story against himself, and his pleasure in the beauty of the countryside in which he works is infectious.
Full of warmth, wisdom and wit.
It is a pleasure to be in James Herriot's company.
