I expensively ordered a copy of this from England many years ago when someone told me it was inspired by Ransome, and I agree - pleasant but ordinary. Still, I should probably reread it and then donate.


I love Swallows and Amazons, but really didn't enjoy this at all, so you are definitely not alone!
I think it's one of those books that has been hyped up a lot especially now with the internet, into being something it isn't.
