    Default Book List

    So, I thought as people ask, here is what i think is a jolly good book list for bunnie owners, old and new:

    The Domestic Rabbit. JC Sandford - has everything.

    Textbook of Rabbit Medicine. Frances Harcourt-Brown (I bow) - expensive but worth the outlay.

    manual of Rabbit Medicine and Surgery - Paul Flecknell. Not for the faint hearted, but interesting insight, good to impress your vet with if you happen to have it in your bag on a viist. :wink:

    Rabbit Health, Husbandry and Diseases - virginia Richardson. Easy use format for that first point of reference.

    Living with a Houserabbit. Dykes and Flack. The essential guide for those wanting a house bunny or two, three, four....

    House Rabbit Handbook. Marinell Harrimen. American viewpoint.

    Why Does My Rabbit. Anne McBride. For the psychologists amongst you.

    How to have a relaxed rabbit. Emma Magnus. Handy hints and tips

    Rabbitlopeadia A Complete Guide to Rabbit Care. Meg Brown and Virginia Richardson. Easy access guide to rabbit care.

    Rabbit Nutrition. Virginia Richardson. fascinating for the introduction of the natural wild rabbit diet.

    Stories Rabbits Tell. Davis and Demellio. Moving and insightful look at rabbits in our society.

    The Problem with Rabbits. A Sanctuaries Modern Approach.
    Taking it one step further: Compiled by Pat Rees.

    The European Rabbit - The History of a Successful Coloniser. Harry V Thompson. A look into the history and evolution of our wild cousin.

    The Private Life of The Rabbit. R M Lockley. Fascinating study into the life of wild rabbits, some tricky bits but well worth reading.

    Rabbits and their History. John Sheail. Again the history of the rabbit from the wild to domestic pet.

    The Rabbit. J E Harting. Ancient, written in 1898. Eye opener.

    and finally not forgetting the most eloquent of our Lagomorph partners, the Hare.

    Wild Hares. Henry Tengner. Insight into the Ecology of the Hare.

    Leaping Hares. not sure of author as friend borrowing it. Beautiful poetical look at life of the Hare.

    The Encyclopaedia of Mammals. David McDonald. Covers all mammals but has a fascinating section on Lagomorphs.

    Hare About the House. Cecil Webb. Touching Story of a Hare living in a house with another house bunny. So house rabbits aren't such a new thing afterall.

    To be Published.
    The supported book of the RWA.

    The Rabbit Whisperer by Ingrid Tarrant. (thats it, wife of the infamous Chris Tarrant of those who remember, Tizwaz, and now Who Wants To Be a Millionaire)

    Most of these are available from Amazon, but if you have any problems locating a copy of any of the above, let me know.

    Happy Reading

    and also....

    Stories Rabbits Tell by Susan E Davis and Margo Demello

    which I have just started reading after buying it on impulse from Amazon. It's about the history of wild rabbits around the world, pet rabbits, myths, stories etc. It does have chapters about rabbits for meat (which I plan to miss out) and rabbits in medical research which I am going to try and read.

    I love books Adele, as soon as a new or old rabbit book is made known to me I have to have it... not that I'm obsessive or anything.....
