The Animals of Farthing Wood (book series)


The Animals of Farthing Wood (book series)

The Animals of Farthing Wood is a series of eight books written by British author Colin Dann. The books tell the story of a group of woodland animals whose home has been paved over by developers. They learn of a nature reserve, White Deer Park, where they will be safe, and undertake to make the journey together. They form an Oath, promising to protect one another and overcome their natural instincts until they reach their destination.

The original book was published in 1979 and was originally meant to be a stand alone book, with the animals reaching White Deer Park at the end. The success of the book led to a further 6 novels detailing the adventures of the animals once they reached White Deer Park, and a prequel showing how Farthing Wood came to be destroyed.

Books

The books were written between 1979 and 1994:
* "The Animals of Farthing Wood" (1979)
* "In the Grip of Winter" (1981)
* "Fox's Feud" (1982)
* "The Fox Cub Bold" (1983)

The book, "The Animals of Farthing Wood" (1979) was originally published by John Goodchild Publishers in the first half of 1979 as two separate paperbacks, entitled "Escape from Danger" ISBN 0-903445-53-0 and "The Way to White Deer Park" ISBN 0-903445-55-7. They were only released in this separate form once, and have since been released as the single novel, "The Animals of Farthing Wood". The only remaining clue to the once split nature of this first story is the way the book is split into chapters, but also into two parts, 'Escape from Danger', and 'Journey to White Deer Park'.
