Novel: Swallows and Amazons

Author: Arthur Ransome

Opening Line:

Roger, aged seven, and no longer the youngest of the family, ran in wide zigzags, to and fro, across the steep field that sloped up from the lake to Holly Howe, the farm where they were staying for part of the summer holidays.

Closing Lines:

“Who was Johnny?” said Roger. “Hullo, there’s mother and Vicky coming down the field.”
