Printing Details

First edition, second impression. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 14cm, 384pp.

Reunited for the summer, the Swallows and Amazons with Dick and Dorothea launch a prospecting expedition to find the lost gold mine of the high hills above the lake. But the mining camp runs into all sorts of trouble: not only the danger of fire in the drought ridden countryside but also scary encounters with unsafe tunnels. Worst of all is the sinister Squashy Hat, who appears to be a rival prospector and who's certainly a spy—how can they keep working without him discovering what they've found?


A good copy. The dustwrapper is a little creased and chipped to the edges with some light marking, and has not been price-clipped. The book is in good solid shape, with spotted foxing to the page edges but the main body of text in good clean condition and with secure binding.


Please note: Due to the recent price rise for final mile delivery from USPS, our postage rates to the US have had to rise. We apologise for this but have no choice.
