When young Tammo runs away from home with the help of his mother and a friend, to seek adventure because his father will not let him go, he soon sets off to stop Damug Warfang and his evil horde. On the way, he meets up with the hilarious, but perilous long patrol hares. Then they all must go and protect the innocent creatures of Redwall, where the South outer wall is sinking and will need to be put under construction, making them an easy target to their enemies.
