The map that appears in the front of the book doesn't appear anywhere on their site and is artfully removed from the taster that they offer. It shows how limited the book is and I think it is really quite disingenuous of Wild Swimming to not include it in the information.
The only section that creeps into the North is the section on Normandy and Loire. Online it boasts the highlights of the area but in fact these 6 spots are the only places in the combined areas of Loire and Normandy! I hope it is just coincidence that the embeded google map for that section online highlights a part of Africa!
So check the contents page carefully and even then do not assume that the coverage is accurately portrayed.
Basically, if you are staying anywhere north of the Tours / Dijon line, then you only have 3 places to choose from and that should be said more clearly!
I've been to some of these sites before and can indeed vouch for their extraordinary beauty. I hope with this book to discover many more... very happy with this.
For everyone who loves a little adventure off the beaten track.
