    Swallowdale af Arthur Ransome (rakerman)
    rakerman: If you enjoyed Swallows and Amazons, you should enjoy Swallowdale, as it is a direct sequel with the same characters, set one year later.

    Vinden i piletræerne af Kenneth Grahame (rakerman)
    rakerman: Both Swallows and Amazons and The Wind in the Willows are classic stories for children that involve boating and adventures.

    The Far Distant Oxus af Katharine Hull (Aquila)
    Aquila: Written by two school girls, and recommended for publishing by Arthur Ransome, holidays with ponies and rafts, a lovely read.

    Cargo of Horses af Monica Edwards (Aquila)

    Two Little Savages af Ernest Thompson Seton (thesmellofbooks)
    thesmellofbooks: Both books have a benign sense of human nature and a love of the outdoors. Both teach lots of interesting things about what the kids are doing as well as entertain. S&A teaches sailing craft, for the most part, and TLS teaches woodcraft. (Don't be put off by the "savages". The book is respectful; the language is dated.)… (mere)

[This is a review I wrote in 2008]

**Classic adventure story!**

I missed out on this as a child... but it's just as good coming to it as an adult. The perfect lazy Sunday afternoon book to read. Adults can also escape to the wilds of Lake Windemere (Lake District), to sail up the Amazon, do battle with pirates and search for buried treasure on Cormorant Island.

The year is 1929 and story is about four children - John, Susan, Titty and Roger (in age order) - who are holidaying on the shores of Lake Windemere with their mum and baby sister, Vicky. The children are an adventurous lot and love sailing in their boat, the Swallow. Towards the end of their holiday they persuade their mum to allow them on an adventure for a week. They're allowed to sail across to the island not far away and make camp there by themselves.

This is a great adventure for these intrepid explorers. They discover a retired pirate, camp, bathe in the lake, fish and cook for themselves, and are threatened by a rival group of bandits, the Amazons (otherwise known as Nancy and Peggy). All in all a great week of fun and adventure is had by all - brilliant to read, although there are very few children who'd be allowed to do this now! Inspired by the author's own childhood holidays at the south end of Coniston in the Lake District. ( )

Pretty tame stuff, but comfortable and pleasant. This is kind of damning with faint praise, I suppose. It's very much the sort of thing you'll like if you like this sort of thing. ( )

Thought it was as short as boxcar children when first saw in magazines, super glad it wasn´t.
Wish I was one of them ( )

I read this book when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I remember having to ask about a lot of words because there is a lot of sailing terminology. Overall, I enjoyed this book. Though the book was slow-paced, it told a story about young kids from 1929 and their adventures. They learn to think independently while exploring an island they found.

I highly recommend this book for young-adult readers. I feel like it was too young to understand the meaning of this book. I'm definitely going to read this book again when I have the time! ( )

Wonderful kids' book from the 1930's. First of a series of twelve. Takes you into a time and place where kids could be kids, camping in nature for summer holiday, adventurous and imaginative: the author remembered what it's like to be a child. I love the sense of humor and the writing style which describes small moments in detail- a squirrel's journey from one branch to another or a dipper bobbing on a rock. This is the sort of book that a kid can treasure and make it part of his or her own life. Lots of nautical terminology and references to classic sea-adventure books. ( )

It is easily imaginable that "Swallows and Amazons" attained its special quality of happiness in its author's mind when, as correspondent to the London Daily News and the Manchester Guardian, he was living through the tragedies of the Front or exploring the chaos of revolutionary Russia. For here is everything that the Front was not and that Russia is not - peace, innocence, family life at its loveliest, laughter and security.

The story is plotted so slightly that the American boy, weaned on "westerns," may turn up his nose at such a low-pitched tale. It will be his loss. Four children go camping on an island in one of the English lakes. Two rival campers - girls, at that - appear, and joyfully agree on war.

But Mr. Ransome has marshalled many aides. First, a reality of scene. As in Defoe, no detail is too insignificant to gloss over, yet the itemizing never grows wearisome, and a store of handy things to know about sailing is secreted in the pages. Second, a reality of characters. They are born alive and do not have to be described.

"Swallows and Amazons" will gain by being read aloud. The child who hears will live gaily, whether on Wild Cat Island or in Octopus Lagoon, while the parent who reads will remember idyllic hours. For this book is both silvery present and golden retrospect. ...

He stared at the Pacific -- and all his men
Looked at each other with a wild surmise --
Silent, upon a peak in Darien."

With the sheet turned down so bravely, O?
For to-night I shall sleep in the cold open field
Along with the wraggle-taggle gipsies, O!"

Who took a boat and went to sea;
But first with beef and captain's biscuits
And pickled pork they loaded she"

I have often been asked how I came to write Swallows and Amazons.

Author's note, 19 May 1958 (some post-1958 editions).
Roger, aged seven, and no longer the youngest of the family, ran in wide zigzags, to and fro, across the steep field that sloped up from the lake to Holly Howe, the farm where they were staying for part of the summer holidays.
