Watership Down
Narrated by Ralph Cosham
Written by Richard Adams

"One of the most beloved novels of our time, Watership Down is an epic journey, a stirring tale of adventure, courage, and survival.

"Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. So did his brother, Hazel, for Fiver's sixth sense was never wrong. They had to leave immediately, and they had to persuade the other rabbits to join them. And so begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture. Fiver's vision finally leads them to Watership Down, an upland meadow. But here they face their most difficult challenges of all.

"A stirring epic of courage and survival against the odds, Watership Down is also an exciting adventure story and an involving allegory about freedom, ethics, and even human nature, in what has become a beloved classic for all ages."
