Swallows & Amazons, the book that started it all in 1930, introduces the Walker family, the camp on Wild Cat Island, the able-bodied catboat Swallow, and the two intrepid "Amazons," the plucky Nancy and Peggy Blackett. In Peter Duck, the crew takes to the high seas in a real treasure hunt, while in Winter Holiday they plan an expedition to the "North Pole." In Coot Club, they try to protect birds from holiday boaters; We Didn't Mean to Go to Sea finds them in the North Sea, driven by a gale straight toward Holland. Secret Water is a "desert island" tale (complete with treasure map), and the Big Six a mystery of mistaken identities. Missee Lee is a tale of the South China Sea, and the concluding volume, Great Northern?, is a grand tour of Scotland. Adventures abound! Parents disappear! Children prevail! This is real writing, by a real writer—making this a beloved and successful series of books for children, young and old.
