About This Item

London: Allen Lane in assoc Rex Collings, 1977. 1st. h/b. Fine, 1st edition, unclipped d/j (v.g., slight bumping at head), brown boards, gilt titling & black etching cover & spine, text block firm, pages unmarked and crisp. 8vo (230 x 150 / 9"" x 6""). Richard Adams (1920-2016) wrote 19 books, including Watership Down. In this, two dogs, Snitter and Rowf, escape from a research laboratory in the Lake District where it is wrongly supposed they have been purposely infected with a deadly virus and now pose a dangerous threat to the human population. As the authorities give chase, the two friends make their way through the hills and across the moors, along the way learning to survive on their wits and finding friendship and help from a fox they encounter. They dream of finding their original owners and a safe haven - but the hunt is on. A lyrical and engrossing tale, The Plague Dogs is a remarkable journey into the hearts and minds of two canine heroes.

Synopsis

The Plague Dogs is the third novel by Richard Adams, author of Watership Down. It was first published in 1977, and features a few location maps drawn by the fellwalker and author Alfred Wainwright.
