Tales From Watership Down

Tales from Watership Down by Richard Adams
**Watership Down** was one of this century’s best-loved works of imaginative literature. Now Richard Adams returns, to tell us what happened to the rabbits after their defeat of General Woundwort.
**Tales From Watership Down** begins with some of the great folk stories well known to all rabbits. Then we listen in as Dandelion, the rabbits’ master storyteller, relates the thrilling adventures experienced by Al-ahrairah, the mythical rabbit hero, and his stalwart, Rabscuttle, during the long journey home after their terrible encounter with the Black Rabbit of Inlé (as narrated in **Watership Down**). Finally, in the principal part of the book, we are told eight enchanting stories about the rabbits of the Down— Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, and their companions—including the impact on the warren of the obsessive doe Flyairth, and the appointment of Hyzenthlay as a female Chief Rabbit and partner to Hazel.
All listners— the millions who remember **Watership Down** with the deepest affection, and also those for whom this volume will be their first encounter with the rabbits— will find these nineteen tales utterly compelling, the fruit of Richard Adams spellbinding narrative power and ability to conjure up a world that is at the same time both real and unreal.
