Arthur Ransome
FameRank: 6

"Arthur Michell Ransome" was an English literature/English author and journalist. He is best known for writing the Swallows and Amazons series of Children's literature/children's books about the school-holiday adventures of children, mostly in the Lake District and the Norfolk Broads. Many of the books involve sailing; fishing and camping are other common subjects. 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.

He also wrote about the literary life of London, and about Russia before, during, and after the Russian Revolution (1917)/revolutions of 1917.
