Arthur Ransome CBE (1884 – 1967) was an English author and journalist. He is best known for writing and illustrating the Swallows and Amazons series of children's books. They tell the story of the school-holiday adventures of children, mostly in the Lake District and the Norfolk Broads. The books remain popular and Swallows and Amazons is the basis for a tourist industry around Windermere and Coniston Water, the two lakes Ransome adapted as his fictional North Country lake.
