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
