I'm reading All Creatures Great and Small right now. It's about three country vets in the 1930s/40s and takes place in the Yorkshire Dales, of England. I found it on my bookshelf and decided to give it a read. It's living up to the favorable reputation it holds. I can't put it down. There are a lot of animal terms that i'm not familar with though, such as a horses withers, flank, and hock.
They also talk of the scenery and country side that surrounds them. It makes me want to take a little visit.
