Publisher Comments:

The beautiful second volume in the cherished adventure series that the Guardian called and#147;the 1930s equivalent of JK Rowling.and#8221;

The Swallows and Amazons return to their lakeside home (in Englandand#8217;s Lake District in the 1930s) bursting with grand schemes for the summerand#151;camping, hiking, fishing and exploring. But a shipwreck and an impending visit from a Great-Aunt threaten to foil all their plans. Never fear: the discovery of a hidden valley and a secret cave lend new excitement to their days!

The sequel to Swallows and Amazons, also available from Overlook, Swallowdale is presented in a deluxe illustrated hardcover edition. Charming and imaginative, yet firmly rooted in the reality of nature, Swallowdale will and#147;capture the imagination of the Harry Potter generationand#8221; (Guardian) and will be treasured by generations to come.
