Tom Dudgeon has cast off a motor cruiser from its moorings to protect a coot's nest, but now the cruiser is searching high and low for him - even offering a reward. Tom accepts an invitation for a week's cruise to teach his new friends, Dick and Dorothea how to sail. You couldn't get a better sailor than Tom but can he really stay one jump ahead of his pursuers long enough to complete the voyage?
A timeless classic, beautifully rejacketed. One of twelve Arthur Ransome titles reissued this month.
About the Author
Arthur Ransome was born in Leeds in l884 and went to school at Rugby. He was in Russia in l917, and witnessed the Revolution, which he reported for the Manchester Guardian. After escaping to Scandinavia, he settled in the Lake District with his Russian wife where, in l929, he wrote Swallows and Amazons. And so began a writing career which has produced some of the real children's treasures of all time. In 1936 he won the first ever Carnegie Medal for his book, Pigeon Post.
"This exciting story of the Norfolk Broads is definitely the best Mr Ransome has written" * Daily Mail * "There is plenty of excitement, a little danger, a quality of thinking, planning and fun which is delightful and stimulating" * Times Literary Supplement * "There is no better companion to a Norfolk Broads holiday than Arthur Ransome's Coot Club . . . A gripping, down-to-earth tale" * Carousel *
