Watership Down
This is a story about a group of rabbits in search of a home. Fiver has a gift - he can sense danger. Unable to convince the Chief Rabbit, Fiver leaves the warren with a group of rabbits in search of a safer home. Along the way they are tempted to join another warren - where food is plentiful - but on discovering the catch (food = snares) they leave in search of a better place. At Watership Down they establish their own warren but realise they need some girl rabbits for the colony to survive. A nearby warren has females, but a battle ensues with the established bucks. Eventually all is sorted and the two sides build a third warren between their camps and fill it with rabbits from both warrens.
