‘Barbecued billygoats!’

Can you imagine finding gold? That’s just what the Swallows and Amazons and Dick and Dorothea decide to hunt for in the hills high above the lake. But it’s a hot and dry summer and water is in scarce supply. Worse still for the troubled campers, they have competition: Squashy Hat. Anybody can see he is a prospector. And talk about squashy hats! The children have never seen squashier. Just who is he and what sort of traps is he laying? Using pigeons to carry messages, braving dangerous mines and fires, the Swallows, Amazons and D’s Mining Company must stake their claim before their dreaded rival...

Review:

"In its own class, and wearing several gold stars for distinction. Pigeon Post stands head and shoulders above the average book for and of children." (The Times)

"There is plenty of excitement, a little danger, a quality of thinking, planning and fun in connection with a gold-mine. The ingenuity of this group of children is delightful and stimulating." (The Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description:

WINNER OF THE FIRST EVER CARNEGIE MEDAL IN 1936.
