Deep in the wilds of Scotland, land of ancient warrior kings and myths, a secret colony of beavers have been hiding in plain sight. Craved for their fur, the beavers’ safety and livelihood depends on their not being discovered by humans. For centuries, no one had seen a beaver in Scotland or England, until the young beaver kit, Dunwattle, is sighted! Dunwattle is disturbed by the presence of a ghostly figure, a young girl. In his panic, he strays far from the den to uncover the mysteries of this ghost and becomes destined to be destroyed for revealing their hidden colony. Yet Dunwattle's best friend, Locksley, is just as determined to save him. Will this ancient colony be obliterated, or will these young beavers find a way to rescue them all?
