Product description

Review

A pleasantly nostalgic journey that will have you searching out your old books once more.



This beautifully illustrated book explores the places that shaped the writer, telling the story about his childhood, his friendships, his two wives and daughter. It also descibes how and where he wrote each of his 12 classic children's books.



'It's a magnificent production, giving the illustrations plenty of space to breathe, and, most importantly, a great, well-researched read. I'm loving it.'

If you're going to the Lakes, or you love Ransome's stories, this heavily-illustrated book is a treat

Christina Hardyment celebrates a life of houses, boats and books. There are wonderful pictures of the man, with his fine, bushy moustache enjoying sailing and fishing and pictures of the houses and boats and nostalgic pictures of the old books in their old dust jackets just as they were when they were first read

About the Author

Christina Hardyment has written books and articles on dizzying range of subjects (including her collection of historical sewing machines, domestic technology, family life and a biography of Sir Thomas Malory).

Time off is spent sailing on the river, in a British Moth dinghy.
