Arthur Ransome’s “Swallows and Amazons” series has stood the test of time. More than just great stories, each one celebrates independence and initiative with a colorful, large cast of characters. Like the entire series that follows, this book is for children or grownups, anyone captivated by a world of adventure and imagination, exploring and setting sail.
“Time went on very fast, much faster than when Robinson Crusoe had been alone.”
Arthur Ransome “Swallows and Amazons” was first published in 1930. This is twenty-sixth impression by Jonathan Cape in 1949. Donated to the library by Matthew Maier from the UK ❤️
