Reunited for the summer, the Swallows and Amazons with Dick and Dorothea launch a prospecting expedition to find the lost gold mine of the high hills above the lake. But the mining camp runs into all sorts of trouble- not only the danger of fire in the drought ridden countryside but also scary encounters with unsafe tunnels. Worst of all is the sinister Squashy Hat, who appears to be a rival prospector and who's certainly a spy - how can they keep working without him discovering what they've found?

The ingeneous methods that these children use in order to carry out their mission- namely mining for gold- is incrediably well conceived and happily beleivable. There is something about the dedication, triumphs, downfalls, disappointments and successes of their search for this elusive element that is both appealing and charming. Somehow these books never end the way that you expect them to but always leave you feeling satisfied in the outcme. A worthy attribute for any master story-teller.
