I have just finished British actor Brian Blessed's autobiography, and he mentions he had "a real Swallows and Amazons childhood". Sadly the chapter continues with details of how his main playthings were dead cats (this was a poor mining town) but the important take-away was the outdoor lifestyle, climbing trees, walking and cycling.
It doesn't make it clear whether he read the book a lot, or just knew of it, but it's always nice to see our favourite referenced in print.
