We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea

Ransome, Arthur

© 1937

Part of the Swallows and Amazons series


The title tells it all. In book six, a few days of inland sailing turn into danger and adventure when the Swallows find themselves in an unmoored boat absent of its owner who they hardly know. Carried out to sea in a storm, the children make use of all their experience from make-believe adventures. One of Ransome's very best.
