Fiver, a prophetic rabbit, sees a vision of destruction for his home warren. As a result, a small band of rabbits decide to leave and find a new home. This small band of rabbits face perilous adventures as they seek to settle in Watership Down.


This fantasy almost takes on an aura of mythology as the rabbits discuss their origins and tales about how they came about. Several archetypical characters play prominent roles and can be pointed out in a literature class.
