The Blue Bird among the Norfolk Reeds, with Some Reflections on the Water

Three years before the First World War, Walter Edwin Ledger, gardener, book collector, and enthusiastic yachtsman, harvested his tulip bulbs and then spent the summer sailing his boat, the 'Blue Bird', through the Norfolk Broads. Back home he wrote a delightful account of his journey, which Arthur Ransome (the author of Swallows and Amazons) subsequently praised as "a wonderful little piece of literature, at once dedicated and honest". Now reissued with an introduction and notes to delight a new generation of readers.
