This is our day of reconfiguration, where the mist has wiped the sea from the very face of the earth and the sun is swaddled far from the reach of human eye...
In this book, Andrew Fusek Peters describes an extraordinary year of wild swimming. He leads us to rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and hidden pools, into wild waters and untamed landscapes that have the potential to surprise and move us in unexpected ways. Following in the wake of great writers such as Richard Jeffries and Edward Thomas, this book combines meditations on place, history, and myth with sharp observation and a poet's eye. It is also a personal journey: swimming through all four seasons, Andrew Fusek Peters surfaces at last from deep depression. Lyrical, honest, and incisive, is about the many ways in which immersing ourselves in the elements can restore us to ourselves.
