Unlike the adventures of Saville's most popular series these books are gentler
in nature, and more based in the normal experiences of normal children. Criminals
are in short supply, camping and the countryside provide the excitement required.
In many ways they are more mature books than the crime adventure series, and very well
written. They were somewhat ahead of their time. The first three books are set in Nettleford, the last
takes place in the upper reaches of Swaledale in North Yorkshire.
The series, in order of publication:
All Summer Through
Christmas at Nettleford
Spring Comes to Nettleford
The Secret of Buzzard Scar
