Summary

How to live a more creative, content and fulfilled life by reconnecting with nature. 

Brothers Jack, Calum and Robbie have been swimming together their whole lives, and they have never lost the sense of wonder, excitement and relief that getting in open water brings. In this book we learn about their swimming feats, from tackling the 145km River Eden to setting the world record for swimming in the Arctic. 

They take us through their preparation for these expeditions, including sourcing wild spots in the heart of sprawling cities in which to train. They document the challenges they encounter and the successes often achieved in the most unexpected ways. And with everything they've learned, they give tips for those wanting to take on their own aquatic foray, whether a beginner or a seasoned swimmer. 

This book will show people of all ages how they, too, can take part in open water swimming and reconnect with the natural world around them. Their experience will embolden listeners to escape their status quo and build confidence and contentment by challenging themselves to try something new and reconsider their relationship with nature and the wild. 

At its core, this book will provide advice, reassurance and inspiration for anyone in search of something more joyful, peaceful and ultimately meaningful.
