Deakin may be responsible for the resurgence in the trend of "wild swimming" with his own passion, and the book it produced. Waterlog investigates the history of swimming in the wild, while embarking on a personal journey to swim through Britain's river's, lakes, lochs and even moats. Stunning writing as always from one of the greatest nature writers. It will inspire you to take a dip, wherever it may be. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
