Malcolm Saville (1901 - 1982) is best known as an author of children's series fiction but also wrote books about the English countryside. Millions of children have read Malcolm Saville's adventure stories which are set in real locations which he encouraged his readers to explore for themselves. His principal works involved The Lone Pine Club - a group of children who form a secret society in wartime Shropshire.
