The Dales Vet

A Working Life in Pictures

By Neville Turner

The Dales Vet is a unique book celebrating author Neville Turner's passion for the countryside, natural history, heritage, music-making, and photography of the Dales. The 30 years he spent in rural veterinary practice working on the eastern slopes of the Pennines gave him the opportunity to establish an intimacy with the Dales across the seasons. The Dales Vet is a collection of literary sketches illustrated with beautiful pictures by the author. Chapters cover life as a rural vet, but also include intimate views of farm animals, hill farmers, wildlife rehabilitation, Dales nature, and Dales culture and landscape. This book will be popular with country lovers, those with an interest in animals and birds, botanists, farmers, photographers, and people with an interest in rural heritage. Neville Turner has appeared on Tyne Tees TV's Dales Diary and the BBC's Countryfile and More Creatures Great and Small. His photographs of Red Grouse were used in the advertising campaigns for "The Famous Grouse" Scotch Whisky. His images and writing have been published in The Field, The Shooting Times, The Times, The Daily Mail, Dalesman, Countryman, The Yorkshire Journal, and Country Letters.
