When a young rabbit named Tohbi rambles through the Arizona desert, it is always with eyes and ears alert for danger from hawks, coyotes, and rattlesnakes. Sometimes his friends are not as careful, and Tohbi wonders why life can be so cruel for rabbits.

Back in the burrow where he lives, his mother can only tell him that this is the way nature is. But that’s not enough to satisfy the little cottontail, hose name comes from a Native American word for rabbit. And so, he sets out on the trail to find an answer.

On his journey, he meets several companions and learns about the timeless balance between different forms of life. He even uncovers surprises about the past that suggest rabbits did not always have to fear predators. Wiser, he returns home with a better understanding of the place of rabbits in the world. Never again will he doubt the worth of the humble cottontail.  

A.L. Means grew up in Britain and has lived in and around Phoenix, Arizona, for over 30 years. He has authored fiction and non fiction of various kinds, using different pen names. As Andrew Means, he has written for newspapers and magazines, mainly covering topics in the field of entertainment and music.
