In Search of Swallows & Amazons
Arthur Ransome's Lakeland
Like one of the best detective stories, this book pieces together the clues to solve the great Swallows and Amazons mystery. Where were the stories set? Roger Wardale draws on his own forty-year search for the secret locations in this guide for present-day explorers.
There are tantalising glimpses into the life and loves of Arthur Ransome: the romantic eternal schoolboy with the soup-strainer moustache. The book is abundantly illustrated with maps, sketches and more than fifty photographs, many of them especially taken for this book by the author. Both text and photographs are supported by numerous quotations from Arthur Ransome.
