To explore and chart the area, avoid the endless mud and survive. And what do they discover? Well, they might not be as alone as they first thought…

Review:

"Once more the Swallows and the Amazons have a magnificent exploring adventure, one more Mr Arthur Ransome has kept a complete record of their experiences, terrors, triumphs, and set it down with the cunning that casts a spell over new children and old" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"This time the Walker children are 'marooned' on an island somewhere in England, and for their adventures there is but one word - enchanting!" ( Sunday Times)

"Many of the adventures were set in the Lakes, but my favourite is the one set at the other end of the country: Secret Water" (Graham Hoyland Independent)

Book Description:

The Swallows are marooned with just a little sailing boat for company - will they survive their chance to become true explorers?
