Recommended as great childrens adventures. Still very readable. This is the first story in the series. It is set in the Lake District in England. One set of siblings sail out to and camp on an island.
Two sisters who have camped on the island appear (sail by), and the fun begins.
This is the first book in Arthur Ransome s series of books for children, most involving sailing adventures.
