The story follows a warren of Berkshire rabbits fleeing the destruction of their home by a land developer. As they search for a safe haven, skirting danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band and its compelling culture and mythos. Adams has crafted a touching, involving world in the dirt and scrub of the English countryside, complete with its own folk history and language (the book comes with a "lapine" glossary, a guide to rabbitese). As much about freedom, ethics, and human nature as it is about a bunch of bunnies looking for a warm hidey-hole and some mates, Watership Down will continue to make the transition from classroom desk to bedside table for many generations to come. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Another classic I put off reading for way to long. Richard Adams certainly knew how to write suspense. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Wynreader
A classic upon which the movie was based. The rabbits come to life each with their own personality. The y even had a language to which you adapt easily. A relaxing enjoyable read.Published 10 days ago by Gordon G. Carlson
