A unique book covering the history of open water swimming in the UK,
This review is from: The Story of Swimming (Hardcover)
This book covers the history of swimming in the UK from earliest recorded times (Romans onward) to the current revival in open water swimming. It is full of wonderful illustrations and photographs and includes a number of short pieces about the authors favourite swimming places. I'm sure many wild swimmers will recognise how the author feels about swimming in open water. Great Xmas present for your wild swimming friends.
