Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Swallows and Amazons return to their lakeside home (in England's Lake District in the 1930s) bursting with grand schemes for the summer--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 also available from Overlook, is presented in a deluxe illustrated hardcover edition. Charming and imaginative, yet firmly rooted in the reality of nature, will "capture the imagination of the Harry Potter generation" (Guardian) and will be treasured by generations to come.

Synopsis:

The beautiful second volume in the cherished adventure series that the Guardian called "the 1930s equivalent of JK Rowling."

About the Author

Arthur Ransome (1884-1967) was the author of more than thirty books for children. Born in Leeds in 1884, he enjoyed active, outdoor holidays, many of which became the settings for his children's stories. Swallows and Amazons, the first of the series of the same name, is regarded as a timeless classic of children's literature.
