Erskine travelers spotted in Yorkshire

An Erskine College travel course this month, led by Assistant Professor of English Dr. Christine Schott and focusing on literary sites in the United Kingdom, included a visit to “The World of James Herriot,” a museum dedicated to the life and work of veterinarian and author James Alfred Wight, best known by his pen name, James Herriot.

Herriot wrote a series of best-selling books based on his experiences as a country vet in Yorkshire, and a popular British television series, All Creatures Great and Small, was based on the books.

Smiling Erskine students, with Schott, were captured in a photo taken at the museum in Thrisk, Yorkshire. The photo was featured on “The World of James Herriot” Facebook page.
