Summary

Four children sail down the lake in order to camp on a deserted island.

The Walker children - also known as Captain John, Mate Susan, Able-Seaman Titty, and Ship's Boy Roger - set sail on the Swallow and head for Wild Cat Island.

There they camp under open skies, swim in clear water and go fishing for their dinner. But their days are disturbed by the Blackett sisters, the fierce Amazon pirates.

The 'Swallows' and 'Amazons' decide to battle it out, and so begins a summer of unforgettable discoveries and incredible adventures.

See inside: Crack the Swallow's code and learn all about the real locations that inspired the adventurous author.

NOTE : Book banded by Peters.
