Arthur Ransome's twelve books about adventures in small wooden boats are utterly captivating: you can almost feel the breeze on your cheeks, smell the "pemmican" (corned beef) sizzling in the pan over the fire, see the sun setting over the still water. Sailing at night, roaming through the woods, camping where and when one wishes. Fictional places, but recognisably based on the Lake District and the Norfolk Broads. If you read these books when you were younger, you'll love doing so again; if you didn't, you must. And they are a great gift for children.These are completely unadulterated reproductions of the 1930s hardback originals, authentic in every respect from the line drawings to the dust jackets and gold-embossed spines. Absolute classics. Reviewed in CLASSIC BOAT magazine. "...it was Nauticalia who came up with the idea of presenting them as a boxed set. With the crossed Swallows and Amazon flags in gold on the ends, it makes a handsome showpiece".
