Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book delivers, providing plans for a full range of rabbit homes, from a simple metal hutch to a full rabbitry. Bennett has more than 50 years of rabbit-raising experience and has authored half a dozen books on the topic. No-nonsense advice plus focus on materials and products leave little room for error. There is something here for both the experienced breeder and the beginner. The building projects are clearly described with line drawings illustrating construction and technique. VERDICT This excellent manual should be paired with any rabbit care guides, and, with the development of urban farming, should see a growing demand. A sterling work and highly recommended.
