About the Author:

Roger Deakin, who died in 2006, was a writer, filmmaker and environmentalist of international renown. He was a founder member of Friends of the Earth, and co-founded Common Ground. He lived for thirty-eight years in a moated farmhouse in Suffolk. Waterlog, which was first published in 1999, became a word-of-mouth bestseller, and is now an established classic of the nature writing canon.

Review:

"Deakin has written an aquatic Songlines." -- Heathcote Williams "I jumped in with both feet and wanted to stay for more." -- Griff Rhys-Jones "Erudite, funky and passionate, a total delight" * Independent on Sunday * "Charmingly and elegantly written" * Daily Telegraph * "A delicious, cleansing, funny, wise and joyful book, so wonderfully full of energy and life. I loved it" -- Jane Gardam

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Roger Deakin set out in 1996 to swim through the British Isles. The result a uniquely personal view of an island race and a people with a deep affinity for water. From the sea, from rock pools, from rivers and streams, tarns, lakes, lochs, ponds, lidos, swimming pools and spas, from fens, dykes, moats, aqueducts, waterfalls, flooded quarries, even canals, Deakin gains a fascinating perspective on modern Britain. Detained by water bailiffs in Winchester, intercepted in the Fowey estuary by coastguards, mistaken for a suicude on Camber sands, confronting the Corryvreckan whirlpool in the Hebrides, he discovers just how much of an outsider the native swimmer is to his landlocked, fully-dressed fellow citizens. Encompassing cultural history, autobiography, travel writing and natural history, Waterlog is a personal journey, a bold assertion of the native swimmer s right to roam, and an unforgettable celebration of the magic of water.
