'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 Dip Andrew Fusek Peters describes an extraordinary year of wild swimming He leads us to rivers lakes waterfalls. Just one short mention of the well known name “Roger Deakin” was all that was needed to attract me to this slim book Any author who relates closely to the Welsh Herefordshire borderlands is going to catch my attention It’s a part of Britain which is often carelessly overlooked; perhaps because agricultural and other attractions such as long walks exploring old market towns and the visiting of obscure and unsung country churches tends not appeal to the mass of unadventurous parents with small children seeking guaranteed hot sunshine obsessed with the latest marketing ‘trends’ Andrew Peters engages in all year round swimming in cold British waters which are never in a month of Sundays ever going to approach the temperatures of the Mediterranean His remarkable reasons for doing so unfold slowly Others on Goodreads have mused upon and described Peters’ perfectly rational reasons for subjecting himself twelve months of the year to uite such an ascetic almost holistically spiritual discipline the practical exercise all year round exercise of which enables him to know grow and understand himself and Polly his wife deeply My criticisms are few the cheap grey washed out photographs printed directly onto the wood pulp paper page are an insult not a compliment to the author’s text This paperback book demands uality white glossy photographs I also wish that the riverspools had been properly indexed That would have been much helpful than a front of book index of the months of the year in simple date order The swim in the pool of a Hong Kong hotel came as a jarring surprise my head was still in Herefordshire and the Welsh Borders as did those in the River Thames at Oxford and the River Fleet at Hampstead Pond London Overall this is a remarkably well written book that is heart warming without being saccharine; a uniue glimpse of the diversity of human existence and how the ‘cards’ played out to each of us can unexpectedly surprise us in so many different ways

A beautifully evocative book about the curative properties of obsessively seeking out wild water and throwing oneself into it Even as an avowed non swimmer I felt the need to seek out water after reading certain chapters because Peters describes the landscape and the sensory experienceshock of it so well
