The beautiful second volume in the cherished adventure series that the Guardian called ?the 1930s equivalent of JK Rowling.?
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 Swallows and Amazons, Swallowdale is charming and imaginative, yet firmly rooted in the reality of nature. Swallowdale will ?capture the imagination of the Harry Potter generation? (Guardian) and will be treasured by generations to come.
Inhaltsangabe: The second title in Arthur Ransome?s classic series for children, for grownups, for anyone captivated by the world of adventure and imagination. Swallowdale (originally published in 1931) follows the Walker family and friends through a shipwreck, a camp on the mainland, a secret valley and cave, and a trek through the mountains. Swallows and Amazons Forever! ?The story is crowded with useful hints on sailing and camping; is exciting but not sensational, funny but never ludicrous; in fact it is a perfect book for children of all ages, and better reading for the rest of us than are most novels.? ?Times Literary Supplement ?Anyone over seven and under seventy who loves the real country will enjoy the book, and it is an excellent read-aloud book for various ages.? ?The Boston Transcript
