THE BOSTON GLOBE

A lyrical, engrossing tale, by the author of WATERSHIP DOWN, Richard Adams creates a lyrical and engrossing tale, a remarkable journey into the hearts and minds of two canine heroes, Snitter and Rowf, fugitives from the horrors of an animal research center who escape into the isolation--and terror--of the wilderness.

Jeane, February 13, 2008 (view all comments by Jeane)
Two hapless dogs escape from an animal research lab into the barren wilderness of England's Lake District, where they take up company with a wild fox. A journalist finds out about them and spreads inflamed reports that the dogs carry bubonic plague, causing the whole countryside to rise up against them in fear and horror. There are two strong appeals to this book: the fast-paced adventure of the dogs fleeing for their lives; and the wonderful characterization and word play that bring them to life. The mongrel's sober speech and the terrier's wandering hallucinatory nonsense are offset by the language of the fox, who speaks a local dialect . It is the dialog between the three that gives the story its life: full of pathos, humor and courage.
