THE OFFICIAL TIE-IN TO THE CHANNEL 5 SERIES, THE YORKSHIRE VET.
The life story of vet Peter Wright, as he walked in the footsteps of the famous `James Herriot', from work experience with him as a lad - to taking over his practice in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
Packed full of laugh-out loud moments, heartbreaking stories and transporting tales of his love for working with the animals and people of this breath-taking part of the country.
Covering his bucolic childhood growing up on a farm right through to the heady days of his successful Channel 5 TV series, Peter's warm nature and professional attitude shine through every page.
Peter Wright qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1981 and has worked at Skeldale for longer than he cares to admit. He worked with Alf Wight and Donald Sinclair, the original James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon, and enjoys telling younger vets tales from his time with them, leaving them wondering if he ever made an appearance in the James Herriot books! Peter enjoys small animal internal medicine as well as equine work, but is also regularly seen out on farm visits. When not working, Peter enjoys playing Bridge, gardening, tractor rallies, and spending time with his family.
