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.
I had trouble putting this book down, I just wanted to keep reading.
It is a wise, real and beautiful story of life, the struggle to overcome hardship and the joy of the simple gifts that are part of our journey.
The greatness of "Watership Down" rests on the sense of realism that Adams brings to his story wild rabbits.

Somehow I missed reading this as a kid. Very engrossing and beautifully written. Some great "technical" detail about the lives of the rabbits as well. Read morePublished 6 days ago by JB Babcock
