The Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome
on CD read by Gabriel Woolf
The twelve books, beginning with Swallows and Amazons itself, have been lovingly abridged and read, most are on 5 CDs and last 6 hours, and they are beautifully produced with sumptuous covers and informative booklets.
The books guarantee eternal youth to those who read them. And children still love them, too.
The Arthur Ransome Society, nearly 2000 strong, approve of these recordings - to the extent that Gabriel Woolf has been made their President.

Welcome to my new website, with apologies for the first (royal mail induced) increase in prices, and with many thanks to those who have made this such an interesting journey so far.
