All Things Bright and Beautiful

Finished All Things Bright and Beautiful, the second book in James Herriot's series. I think I liked this one more than the first book All Creatures Great and Small. More time is spent on James tending to his various patients and their unusual and droll owners. This book is funny and charming. It is very interesting to consider what new drugs appeared that changed the veterinary world forever, antibiotics for example. Various bizarre and old fashioned remedies come to light, many suggested by the local farmers. It is a comfortable read populated by characters I know and love, especially Siegfried Farnon.
