Richard Adams is best known for his landmark children’s novel WATERSHIP DOWN, but to me, he’ll always be the voice of Traveller.
Adams passed away in the final week of 2016 at the age of 96. He was a World War II veteran and served for a year as the head of the RSPCA, an animal welfare charity in Britain. Most of his obituaries mention WATERSHIP DOWN and other books, but not TRAVELLER, which is reportedly out of print.
As Adams’s Traveller might say, that’s a durned shame. Yet, I also understand.
So will you, if you haven’t figured it out already.
