Example text

He carries a taint and a doom with him and is rejected by Mother Earth, for he is not one of her Yorkshire brood.  If the great conflict of the twenty­first century is to be between the tolerant and the intolerant, Herriot is a politically and socially useful writer for the attitudinal development of the young.  His prose is devoid of periphrasis.  Threading all the stories is the male human saga: Herriot the single outsider entering the territory of what is for him a closed tribe, finding acceptance through competent service, maturing, encouraged to wiving in young manhood, siring child, going off to fight for the tribe, returning alive to honor and full acceptance, and telling his tale to neighbor and stranger alike.

Herriot begins to imagine Siegfried in a not­quite­flattering Germanic stereotype: "short, fat, roly­poly type with merry eyes and a bubbling laugh" (AC, 9–10), which sounds a lot like Father Christmas or Santa Claus.  Later, while dozing in the peaceful Skeldale House garden, waiting for the absentminded Siegfried to arrive for the hiring interview, Herriot dreams about the absent "Herr Farrenen," whom he now dislikes for thinking so little of him as to miss this all­ important appointment and who has power over the affections of a desirable woman who has just bashed his own young and fragile ego.

AC, 44). " Life is rich, full, and satisfying for this young man, who is wise enough to accept the gift of a good world to live in, one that despite war and modernity will change little, allowing him daily to reflect in a Wordsworthian way that he is a tiny part of a vast, majestic, eternal landscape that has kindled his creativity and inspired his considerable descriptive power. Three plot strands provide the great rope of the book: James the tyro learning of his profession with his concomitant acceptance in the town, in the dales, and on the fells; the battle saga of the brothers Farnon, Siegfried, and Tristan; and the courtship of Helen.
