James Herriot, strapped into the cockpit of a Tiger Moth trainer, feels rather out of place, but he hasn't found a new profession and it surely won't be long before the RAF come round to his point of view . . .

From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, Vet in a Spin, James Herriot's sixth volume of unforgettable memoirs sees him dreaming of the day when he can rejoin his wife Helen, little son Jimmy, veterinary partner Siegfried, the eternal student Tristan - and all the old Darrowby cows, both two-legged and four.

He can tell a good story against himself, and his pleasure in the beauty of the countryside in which he works is infectious.
