First published in 1972, Richard Adam's extraordinary bestseller Watership Down takes us to a world we have never truly seen:  to the remarkable life that teems in the fields, forests, and riverbanks, far beyond our cities and towns.  It is a powerful saga of courage, leadership, and survival; and epic tale of a hardy band of Berkshire rabbits forced to flee the destruction of their fragile community and their trials and triumphs in the face of extraordinary adversity as they pursue a glorious dream called "home"
