Dip Summary


Dip: Wild Swims from the Borderlands by Andrew Fusek Peters

In Dip, Andrew Fusek Peters describes an extraordinary year of wild swimming. He leads us to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and hidden pools, into untamed landscapes that have the potential to surprise and move us in unexpected ways. Following in the wake of great writers such as Richard Jefferies and Edward Thomas, Dip combines meditations on place, history and myth with sharp observation and a poet's eye.

As he takes the plunge and immerses himself in the elements, Andrew also begins to surface from a deep depression, making Dip at once a personal journey and about the many ways in which wild water and nature can restore us to ourselves.

Dip Reviews


Acknowledging the influence of Roger Deakins's pioneering book Waterlog, Peters has written an account that is much more personal but no less wise. Among the current crop of British nature writers, he deserves a prominent place. -- Piers Moore Ede * TLS *
A poetic book...beautiful [and] a thoroughly human story -- Matt Haig * The Independent *
Dip tells of a total immersion in Nature, a courageous trust in its restorative powers and an authentic experience of the wild -- Paul Evans, Guardian Country Diarist
Beautiful, lyrical, beguiling and enchanting - a powerful testament to the healing powers of Nature -- Daniel Start, author of Wild Swimming
Poignant -- You Magazine * You Magazine *
