Product Description

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, 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 “capture the imagination of the Harry Potter generation” (Guardian) and will be treasured by generations to come.


Praise for Swallowdale:

“If there is a nicer book this side of Treasure Island, I have missed it.” —Observer

“Here is enough and to spare to keep one reading into the small hours. Swallowdale should, like its predecessor, rank as a classic.” —Yorkshire Post



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.
