For those who might wish to get back to the genuine world of Arthur Ransome there is now available a new and revised paperback edition of AR’s book ‘Old Peter’s Russian Tales’ (first published in 1916), and this also includes ‘The Battle of the Birds and the Beasts’ (published in 1984). Both of these are collections of Russian folk stories, as noted down and translated by AR in his first visits to Russia. The stories give a wonderful insight into folk memories of ‘old Russia’ set among the vast forests, alive with animals. This is the real Russia that Ransome loved (nothing to do with cardboard ‘spies’).

This combined volume is published by the Arthur Ransome Trust (ART). If anyone’s interested, you can order the book at the ART online shop (not a bad Christmas Present?)
