The Wild Reads collection

Waterlog by Roger Deakin

In 1996, Roger Deakin set out to swim through the British Isles, writing a book that would go on to encourage the nation to take to the wild waters and swim. The result, Waterlog, is a celebration of the sea, lakes and rivers that we find ourselves surrounded by.
