Taking the Plunge: The Healing Power of Wild Swimming for Mind, Body and Soul

By Anna Deacon; By Vikki Allan

Wild swimming changes lives. The thrill of plunging – or dipping a toe – into open water brings joy, confidence, adventure and friendship. It can wash away stress and sadness, pain and grief. Here water is a great healer, a place to feel gloriously, elementally alive and in touch with yourself, with others and with nature.

Full of life-affirming personal stories and breath-taking images of scenery and swimmers, Taking the Plunge celebrates the remarkable wild swimming community. Now you too can immerse yourself in its energy, courage and irresistible joie de vivre!

With practical advice on how wild swimming works and how to get started – from what you’ll need (cossie and a smile!) to where best to go (rivers, oceans, lochs, lakes . . .) – there’s never been a better time to take the plunge.
