Sintesi dell'editore

Richard Adams, the author of Watership Down, creates a lyrical and engrossing tale, a remarkable journey into the hearts and minds of two canine heroes, Snitter and Rowf. After being horribly mistreated at a government animal-research facility, Snitter and Rowf escape into the isolation - and terror - of the wilderness. Aided only by a fox they call "the tod", the two dogs must struggle to survive in their new environment. When the starving dogs attack some sheep, they are labeled ferocious, man-eating monsters, setting off a great dog hunt that is later intensified by the fear that the dogs could be carriers of the bubonic plague.

Must read

You have to listen to this book! So sad, yet so beautiful. Really inspiring. PS. Animal testing is the sickest thing in the world. I really felt sick to my stomach when they talked about the poor monkey in this book, who was part of the social isolating test. 45 days in isolation...

Outstanding - what lessons contained within

I'd wanted to revisit this book for some time as it was one of my late Dad's favourites from childhood and provoked a lifelong love of the lake district.

By the end I was in tears as it is such a beautiful book as many of Richard Adams' are.

There are so many lessons we should have learned from books like this in the last decades and much like Lord of the Flies is one that should be revisited as a timely reminder bot to follow the herd, to think independently, to find our own center of what is right .... and then act on it! I can't recommend it enough, whether simply reading for pleasure or for its still relevant analogies to the current craziness in this world.

A must, particularly if you like dogs

Wow, what a story. Wonderfully narrated, the characters of Snitter and Ralph are brought to life with Adams' amazing descriptive talent. I didn't want it to end and willed the dogs on throughout. A must read/listen.
