Discover the original Swallows and Amazons books that have captured the imaginations of generations of children and adults alike since 1930.
Written by renowned journalist, author and spy Arthur Ransome, the twelve novels in the Swallows and Amazons series feature the childhood holiday adventures of the Walkers, the Blacketts (and occasionally the Callums) in the English Lake District and the Norfolk Broads, with the odd excursion to the Walton Backwaters, the Scottish Hebrides, the Caribbean and China.
The books, all in print and widely translated, are available from all good booksellers.
