The first real flood would wash the dam at the bathing-pool away for ever. Everything would be as it had been, and their own Swallowdale, with its neat tents and cheerful fire, would be no more than a memory or something he had read about in a book. It was a queer thought, not comfortable.4/5(32). Alert All Library locations are closed until further notice. More Info.

Most of all, what is astounding in Swallowdale, and I am sure it exists in the first children’s book as well, is that the children are totally trusted to be independent, much more so than any child today might be. The children climb mountains, sail boats on the lake, set up camp, and live out on their own. Swallowdale – Book your room for the Swallowdale hotel in on ViaMichelin.
