Arthur Ransome began to fish as a boy in the Lake District, but the pursuit became almost an obsession when he lived in Russia during World War I and reported the Revolution and its aftermath for the Daily News and the Manchester Guardian. When he returned to England with Trotsky's secretary as his wife, he settled in Lakeland and began his four-year weekly column Rod and Line for the Guardian, stopping only to write the twelve Swallows and Amazons books for children which made him famous. Although he published a few of these and other fishing essays in two books, Rod and Line and Mainly about Fishing, most of his writing and broadcasting on the subject has never appeared in book form.

Spread out under the vast Norfolk skies, the Broads have helped define the county. In a panoramic sweep of facts, anecdotes and historical research, Pete Goodrum tells their story. From the Roman occupation, when the peat excavations that would form them were first begun, through the dark days of the Middle Ages, to the innovations of the nineteenth century and the emergence of the area as an internationally loved holiday location, this is the complete picture of the Norfolk Broads. Long thought to be a natural phenomenon the Broads are now known to be manmade. And man has made much of them. An inspiration to writers and artists, a passion for conservationists and a recreational wonderland for holidaymakers, the Norfolk Broads are inextricably linked to the history and social development of the county. Covering the development of this beautiful and intriguing area up to the present day, Norfolk Broads: The Biography is a rewarding insight into the history of these magical waterways.

Much has been written about the life of Arthur Ransome. Yet, until now, there has been no critical assessment of his legacy to English literature. Dr Hunt begins his study with the astonishing stream of writings Ransome produced in his twenties before the First World War - among them books on French literature, on the work of Poe and Wilde, on the pleasures of Bohemian life. For Hunt, three books culled from Ransome's Russian journalism reveal as much about their author as about the turmoil of revolution. These led to a ten-year association with the Manchester Guardian, where Ransome first published his classic fishing essays. Hunt examines the mature technique of the books for children. With the 'Swallows and Amazons' series Ransome invented a new genre, whose sales were to reach many millions. A deep commitment to democracy and freedom (though never licence) is seen as the hallmark of their lasting quality. These books, together with Ransome's Autobiography, continue to have a wide following among adults as well as children. Their author was honoured in 1990, long after his death, with the founding of the Arthur Ransome Society.
