Swallows and Amazons

review Swallows and Amazons Swallows and Amazons Free download ô 5 Read Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Arthur Ransome The first title in Arthur Ransome’s classic series originally published in 1930 for children for grownups for anyone captivated by the world of adventure and imagination Swallows and s introduces the lovable Walker family the camp on Wild Cat Island the able. I feel like I heard about this book throughout my childhood I believe that the author wrote the introduction to one of my favorite childhood books The Far Distant Oxus which was heavily influenced by this book but I never came across a copy I finally got around to reading itI do wish I d read it as a child and I hope that kids today are reading it although they probably aren t It s the sort of book that just doesn t seem to get published todayFour young siblings ask permission to camp out on an island in a lake during their summer vacation They do so meet a couple of other children and play at piracy It s an ode to imagination and summer idylls but what s striking about it is its clear intention to inspire I liked all the details that make the reader feel fully euipped to do all the things the characters are shown doing The author accomplishes this without ever being patronizing or detracting from the flow of the storyThese are very very good children They are responsible thoughtful and obedient I thought they could ve had a little bit mischief or something I think the goody goody aspect is why this didn t uite make it up to 5 stars But most of all they are self reliant and capable Their parents recognize that for children to learn you have to let them off a leash and supervise from a distance There is none of the gender bias that one might expect from a book published in 1930 OK except for the mother asking the absent military father s permission before giving her blessing to the expedition but getting both parents approval for a major undertaking isn t that unreasonableNo not every child has the luxury of having this kind of summer vacation but every child can dream about having their own boat to play pirates with and every child can be inspired by the practical skills that these kids incorporate into their adventures The book doesn t even feel dated with one exception tent technology sure has progressed since the 1930s even since the 1970s
