About This Item

New York: Macmillan Pub Co, 1974. First state jacket with only British reviews to rear panel. Really a pretty nice, slightly used copy of this poorly produced book, slight spine lean and slight scuff to fore edge, speck spot bottom edge. The price clipped jacket has a few short tears and mild soiling to rear panel. May not look like any pricture at left.. First Edition/First Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.

Synopsis

Watership Down is an allegorical fantasy novel written by British author Richard Adams, narrating the adventures of a small group of anthropomorphized rabbits as they escape the destruction of their homeland. The story is set in England’s Downs, an idyllic rural home to the small native creatures who possess their own cultures, languages, poetry and mythology. They are soon faced with the settlement of humanity and watch as their land is ravaged by farmland and industrialized commercial advancement. In fear of their lives they leave their homes in hope of finding safety for their family and friends, despite the temptations and perils they are forced to struggle with along the way.

On Dec 27 2016, a reader said:
After hearing of Richard Adams' death, I turned once again to a book I have long considered to be a best friend. This adventure story pulls you into a world unseen by humans. The characters are human enough to relate to but animal enough to remain rabbits. The story is captivating and relevant. No matter how many times I read it, I can never put it down while reading the last quarter, it's so suspenseful and exciting.

The characters have been beloved of me for many years and I only hope that I have Fiver's insight, Hazel's authority, Bigwig's strength, and Blackberry's wits.
