Peggy And Me

Author:

Miranda Hart

Synopsis:

Hello, dear book browser, and welcome to the story of my life since getting a beautiful shih-tzu/bichon-frise cross puppy in the form of Peggy. It wasn't instant love for me, I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy, and there was a lot of challenging...what I call dog administration (dog-min). It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life-changing moments, and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly, she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.

James Herriot

Synopsis:

WHEN TAKING A COW'S TEMPERATURE THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY, NEVER LET GO OF THE THERMOMETER... James Herriot has settled happily into life as a Darrowby vet, tending to livestock and pets alike - not to mention dealing with his mercurial boss Siegfried and his irrepressible, puckish vet student brother Tristan. Day to day, he finds himself testing entire herds of cattle for tuberculosis; acquiring another generous animal nephew alongside Tricki Woo the Peke (this time, Nugent the pig); fending off a ferocious Great Dane with a rickety chair - and attempting to court a farmer's daughter, the lovely Helen Alderson...

Let Sleeping Vets Lie

Author:

James Herriot

Synopsis:

I HAVE LONG HELD THE NOTION THAT IF A VET CAN'T CATCH HIS PATIENT THERE'S NOTHING MUCH TO WORRY ABOUT... It's not all chasing livestock around fields, though - James Herriot is also kept busy judging the Family Pets contest at the Darrowby village show (discovering the cut-throat, backstabbing politics seething beneath the fete's surface), and attempting to calve a cow whilst drunk (on a farm full of strict Methodists). And he's over the moon after proposing successfully to Helen Alderson - even if it looks like they'll be spending a romantic honeymoon travelling around farms tuberculin testing cattle...

Vet In Harness

Author:

James Herriot

Synopsis:

With his wife Helen by his side, and a partner's plate on Skeldale House's railings, James Herriot thinks the Yorkshire Dales have never seemed more beautiful. Despite farmers who think nothing of calling him out to freezing fields at three o'clock in the morning, then drunkenly serenading him as he tends to a ewe in labour. Or vicious pigs who have to be bribed into their pens with biscuits. But there are bright moments too: pulling off a miracle cure with the new sulphonamide drugs; and saving a stray kitten - who finds a most unusual mother in the form of a sow...

The Last British Dambuster

Author:

George 'Johnny' Johnson

Synopsis:

On 16 May 1943, Johnny Johnson, alongside 132 specially selected comrades, took off from Scampton airbase in Lincolnshire. For six weeks they had been trained to fulfil one mission that was near impossible: to destroy three dams deep within Germany's Ruhr Valley. It was a daring task but, against the odds, Johnny and his crew survived. Sadly, 53 comrades did not. For the first time, Johnny relives every moment of that fatal night - and the devastating aftermath. He recalls with unique wit and insight the difficult training conducted in secrecy, the race against time to release the bombs, and the sheer strength and bravery shown by a small unit faced with great adversity and uncertainty. Embodying a whole squadron, and leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come, Johnny's story is like no other.
