Waterstones Says

Adams’ timeless parable of courage, survival and hope sings in this gorgeous collectible edition.

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for over forty years, Richard Adams' spellbinding classic Watership Down is one of the best-loved novels of all time, and resonates just as vividly today as it did nearly half a century ago.

Sandleford Warren is in danger.

Hazel's younger brother Fiver is convinced that a great evil is about to befall the land, but no one will listen. And why would they when it is Spring and the grass is fat and succulent?

Together Hazel and Fiver and a few other brave rabbits secretly leave behind the safety and strictures of the warren and hop tentatively out into a vast and strange world. Chased by their former friends, hunted by dogs and foxes, avoiding farms and other human threats, but making new friends, Hazel and his fellow rabbits dream of a new life in the emerald embrace of Watership Down ...

Design features of this classic edition include gold foil, head and tail bands and a beautiful gold ribbon.
