5.0 out of 5 stars The art of taking a wilderness dip is far from lost, 13 May 2009
This review is from: Wild Swimming: 150 Hidden Dips in the Rivers, Lakes and Waterfalls of Britain (Paperback)
This is my first review but felt compelled to write a little something about this book. I bought this for a country wide, camping and adventure tour this summer and thought what better way to adventure than to dive into some of Britain's lakes, rivers and waterfalls, but the book far outweighed expectations.

The photos are superb and regularly have me daydreaming about shedding my clothes and worries and taking a refreshing plunge into the crystal waters. Directions on how to get to the water is also fantastic. One of my favourite features of the book is the sectioning off of swimming locations under headings, such as 'great for paddling','literary swims' or 'skinny-dipping'. The book will tell you the spots that are good for taking a picnic or bikes to and can really help in dreaming up little adventures. Not only a great guide book but also has information on how to build a riverside sauna or on building a raft for setting sail. Some of the history behind some of the swimming spots is also interesting. Great book, and a great buy for lovers of the great outdoors
