    1 thought on “Dip: Wild Swims from the Borderlands

    1. 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 w [...]

    2. A very moving, short work by a British author which depicts his battle with severe depression and how he found swimming in outdoor pools, ponds, etc to be cathartic and healing. It is a short work but very raw and honest, especially how he describes his depression's crippling symptoms. The author had a lifelong love of swimming outdoors and this became a natural extension of his return to society. A recommended work for those who either enjoy the healing aspects of engaging with nature or wish t [...]

    3. Engaging, honest, and well-woven telling of one man's love of his life giving, be here now method - wild swimming. While the story does become strained in October, the rest of the month's tales are memorable and touching. Andrew Fusek Peters has gotten the closest to describing my own experience and desire for outdoor & cold water dunks - "When water closes around me, this is eternally the moment I am alive. To swim is to breathe" - words I have not been able to put together as coherently m [...]

    4. 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 experience/shock of it so well.

    5. Beautiful descriptions of a year swimming n the wilds of Britain. The author also describes his battles with depression and addiction. It's a shame the photos weren't printed on better quality paper A must-read for any wild swimmer.

    6. Beautiful, evocative and poetical. A book to make to you think about the beauty of nature and how we must protect it. A heartfelt and frank look into the life of the author. A most sublime and joyous read!!

    7. A lovely short well written book which can be read as a series description of a series of wild swims, a record of a recovery from mental illness or both. However, the picture of a swimmer wearing a woolly hat should tell you all you need to know about all-season wild swimming in the British Isles.

    8. Loved this book. Beautifully written and made you feel as though you were visiting the same places as the author. Great for de-stressing after a tough day at work.

    9. Im a wild swimmer and I wasnt sure that this book was going to be any more than a pale imitation of the classic Roder Deakin's Waterlog. But I loved this! The sense of exploration and adventure in every swim, the passing of the seasons and year - they were captured so well and with such a sense of the joy of life. The restorative, life affirming properties of wild swimming are so well-articulated in this, as well as the bravery needed to overcome depression. Thanks Andrew!
