My brother gifted me this (relatively) recently-published book at Christmas, and I enjoyed it, despite the author swinging between being lovingly obsessed with, and then showing negative attitude towards, Arthur Ransome.

The author visits every island in the Lake District, and tries to camp on as many as possible. he goes off topic often, but usually in an interesting fashion, and peppers his account with S&A facts.

Has anyone else tried it?
