Doesn't'Dick's birdwatching discovery turns the cruise of the Sea Bear into a desperate chase Not only do the Swallows and s have to prove the facts of the case but they also have. Loon Loon Great Northern Diver and that's the centerpiece of the FINAL and TWELFTH volume of the wonderful Swallows and s outdoor juvenile adventure series Oh how sad it is to say farewell to the fictional characters whose lives and adventures wrap up in ScotlandThe Walkers the D's and the Blacketts along with Captain Flint Nancy and Peggy Blackett's uncle have one final adventure together though Dick and his natural history curiosity and scientific knowledge anchor the plotDick has sighted a nesting pair of birds but how could they be Great Northern Divers That bird does not nest in Britain according to the guidebooks; Dick needs to investigate further and if the birds are indeed making scientific history he feels compelled by his scientific nature and sense of duty to get photographic evidence for the larger scientific communityUnfortunately an unscrupulous ornithological egg collecting fame seeker in a boat called the Pteradactyl wants to kill and stuff the birds and carry off the eggs for his private collectionThe whole gang must work together in order for Dick to find the nest identify the birds and take the photographs Meanwhile not only are the birds and the gang in danger from the wicked collector Dick and the others have also unwittingly stirred up the wrath of the localsMost of the action for this one happens on land in a new setting yet the familiar characteristics of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and s outdoor adventure series are clearly evident Fans won't be disappointed with this book as a stand alone but they may very well feel let down that this book ends the series with no hints about the future of all these wonderful characters
Read Great Northern?
Great NorthernTo dodge the savage natives and evade the ruthless pursuit of a fanatic egg collector determined to kill a pair of rare birds and steal the credit Fortunately Nancy has a few plans. Here you lookwhat's the matterNothing nothing said Titty impatiently scrumpling her handkerchief into a ball It really was dreadful the way her eyes would weep when there was nothing whatever to weep aboutuite the contraryA great end to the series On this one the Swallows and s Dick and Dorothea and Captain Flint are all out to save a rare type of bird from an egg collector in Scotland And the McGinty tribe think they are up to no good There were parts that I found a bit monotonous and still not uite as interesting as some of the others A book I recommend to young and old readers alike Arthur Ransome wrote characters that are fascinating and enjoyableI wonder what it would be like to read a book of all these characters as adults

Jibbooms and bobstays exclaimed Nancy Peewits and Puffins I meanGreat Gannets and GuillemotsGreat Auks and AlbatrossesDon't be a thundering galoot ListenFinally down to the last book of Swallows and s The author manages to bring one of the best of all to wrap the series and I can't help but feel a bit sad that all of it comes to an end But it's only depressing until you remember that you can just go through the entire series again anytime you want It was great to have the entire suad for this last adventure and to have a perfect ending at least to this story I was a bit bummed out to see how soon the story ended without even hinting that this is the final story Almost felt as though there could've been later onWhat a dogmudgeonly brute said RogerDogmudgeon's a good word said Nancy Isn't it said roger I'll lend it if you likeLiving in the amazing world of Swallows and s in the last few weeks this is undoubtable one of the best books series I have ever read The main characters are so fascinating and regardless in what age you are in you will fall in love with each and every one of them My personal favorites were Nancy Titty and Dot but they are all uite amazing Hopefully Swallows and s will always have a place in my Annual Read ShelfNative trouble said Titty Just what we've got to keep out of But anyhow we've been beautifully stalked
