Old Peter's Russian Tales



Description Old Peter's Russian Tales


Arthur Ransome is best known for his Swallows and Amazons series of children’s books. This is the only example of his fiction in the public domain. These stories are all from Russian folklore, some comparatively well-known, others less so. Ransome spent some years in Russia as a newspaper correspondent for the Daily News and the Manchester Guardian and was peripherally involved in the revolution. In the late twenties he married Evgenia Shvelpina, Trotsky's secretary, retired from newspapers and started writing his children’s books. (Summary by AJM)
