A book, first published in 1927, written by Henry Williamson, based upon his experiences of visiting Exmoor on his motorcycle after the First World War.

Although a work of fiction it is based very much on things that he saw and people that he met during his visits to this wilderness area of Cornwall. It treats its subject matter, that of an otter living in that area in a similar way to that of Watership Down and the rabbits of the South Downs. The book was made into a film in 1979 which was moderately successful in Britain.
