Set in England's Lake District in the 1930s, this novel tells the rollicking story of four young children who embark on an island adventure in their boat, the "Swallow." Upon arriving, the friends are besieged by Amazon pirates, who claim ownership of the land. Luckily, the Swallows and Amazons soon call a truce and set off together on wild escapades.
