They lived, comfortable and secure, in the best of all worlds. Until one of them had a vision: he saw the hillside that was their home covered with blood. Prophesying imminent destruction to all who remained there, he and his brother appealed to their chief. They were dismissed routinely. Obedience – and death – faced them. Or rebellion – and survival, maybe. Watership Down is a picaresque saga of the maverick band who set out, against all odds, on a quest for a new home, and a better society. How they succeed is an epic adventure and a compelling contemporary odyssey of leadership found and lost. The heroes of this tale are animals – wild rabbits. Their behavior is consistent with the laws of nature, yet each is endowed with a blood-and-gut personality that is unforgettable. The full-bodied characterization and compelling plot fuse, transcending the animal world and illuminating man’s great humanity – and terrible inhumanity. The setting is the rolling hills and meadows of England. The time is now – or tomorrow – or always.
