Andrew Fusek Peters
Dip: Wild Swims from the Borderlands
Peters 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.
