Watership Down by Richard Adams One of the most famous animal adventures ever, Richard Adams’s Watership Down has been a worldwide bestseller for more than forty years. An epic and stirring tale, Watership Down focuses on a group of rabbits who possess their own language, culture and proverbs. After receiving a disturbing vision, the group must traverse across the English countryside to safety, and ultimately - survival.
Watership Down, illustration by Emily Sutton. Available October 2012 - one of my very most favorite books! Filled with excellent allusions to other classic literature and serving as an interesting twist to the typical hero's journey, Watership Down is a book that has remained one of my favorites since I was about 12 - and has only improved with age :)
