James Herriot illuminated the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, taking hundreds of thousands of listeners on a journey with him across the dales. He introduces a cast of truly unforgettable characters: humans, dogs, horses, lambs--even parakeets--all of them revealed with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. The stories are made all the more special by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot-- Christopher Timothy, whose performance warmly and evocatively brings the stories to life. Now his first three classic works, digitally remastered on CD, are brought together in a beautiful gift set sharing with even more listeners the joy of James Herriot.

Confirmed with an O.com rep that this IS, in fact, an unabridged audiobook, published in October 2006. Hopefully, they will update the publishing information to reflect as much. Their chat line, which is usually very helpful, was not much assistance in this instance. Very glad I got Isaac on the phone who told me everything I needed to know!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not enough information. Wanted to know if it was abridged or not. The chat service on o.com was NOT helpful, but the phone help was and confirmed it was unabridged, which would have deterred me from purchasing if it was abridged.
