John, Susan, Titty and Roger, the crew of the Swallow, take on the job of mapping the mass of small islands round Pin Mill while living on the biggest one. But who are the mysterious savages who lurk in the islands - and is the tribal totem they find in their campsite a threat of attack. ?
Fans of Arthur Ransome's beloved Swallows and Amazons series from the 1930s can enjoy yet another volume with the reissue of Secret Water, the eighth installment in the ongoing nautical adventures of the Walker and Blackett children (Swallows and Amazons, respectively), now camping out alone on a desert island. With black-and-white illustrations.
