All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot

This book was written as the memoirs of Dr. Herriot in his experiences as a veterinarian in the Yorkshire Dales of England. He told the story in such a gentle way, detailing his encounters with his animal patients, and their owners.

My favorite part was just the way he depicted some of the difficult owners. Dr. Herriot did a beautiful job capturing some of their personality traits at their worst, yet in his humorous interaction and responses, I still felt the love and compassion this man had for everyone.

I found myself stopping mid-page many times and wishing I could view every person I encounter with the same unconditional acceptance. Dr. Herriot had such love for both animals and humans alike, and I am inspired to emulate his example with my present community in here.
