Dieser sensationelle und vollkommen neuartige Reiseführer führt uns an wilde Seen, Flüsse und Wasserfälle in Frankreich und lässt uns das Land mit ganz neuen Augen sehen. Die Côte d'Azur zu überlaufen, der aufgewühlte Atlantik gut zum Surfen, jedoch weniger gut zum Schwimmen – aber das französische Binnenland bietet spektakuläre Badestellen, von deren Existenz wir gar nichts wussten. Ist das wirklich Frankreich und nicht Costa Rica? Drei Sommer lang bereiste der Traveler, Autor und Verleger Daniel Start mit seiner Frau das Land. Herausgekommen ist ein Brevier magischer Orte, genau solcher Orte, nach denen wir immer suchen, wenn wir auf Reisen sind. Denn in der Natur schwimmen ist eine der seltenen Dinge, die uns ein tiefes Gefühl der Verbundenheit mit der Natur – und mit uns selbst verschaffen.

Mit dem Überraschungserfolg »Bedeutende Objekte und persönliche Besitzstücke aus der Sammlung von Lenore Doolan und Harold Morris, darunter Bücher, Mode und Schmuck« erfand Leanne Shapton auf spektakuläre Weise die Liebesgeschichte neu. »Bahnen ziehen« ist ihre Liebeserklärung an das Schwimmen. Und wieder beschreitet sie neue Wege des Erzählens – in Wort und Bild. Der Geruch von Chlor durchweht dieses Buch, die Rufe des Trainers hallen darin wider. Junge Menschen auf dem Sprung zum großen Traum: Teil des olympischen Schwimmteams zu werden. Selbst jenseits des Beckens noch ist ihr Leben, sind ihre Gespräche und Träume, ihre Essgewohnheiten und Liebesbeziehungen geprägt vom Rhythmus des Trainings und ihren sportlichen Ambitionen. Doch wo hat die Faszination für das Schwimmen ihren Ursprung? In den Kinderbüchern? Den Familienausflügen ans Meer? Und was ist heute, wo ganz andere Dinge ihr Leben bestimmen, von dieser Faszination noch übrig? Leanne Shapton, damals selbst Teil der Schwimmmannschaft, geht diesen Fragen nach – Bahn um Bahn. So ist aus sehr persönlichen Momentaufnahmen zwischen Selbstdisziplin und Selbstfindung ein eindringliches, unmittelbares Panorama des Erwachsenwerdens entstanden. - Mit zahlreichen farbigen Illustrationen und Fotos

Niemals hätte Jessica J. Lee gedacht, dass ausgerechnet die Seen rund um die deutsche Hauptstadt ihrem Leben eine neue Wendung geben würden. Geboren und aufgewachsen in Kanada, hat sie später viele Jahre in England verbracht. Berlin mutet ihr zunächst unwirtlich an. Als Lichtblick erscheinen ihr die unzähligen Seen rund um die Stadt. Und die passionierte Schwimmerin beschließt: 52 der über 3000 im Brandenburger Land versteckten Gewässer wird sie im Laufe eines Jahres testen – ganz egal, ob die Augusthitze über dem Nymphensee brütet oder die klirrende Kälte den Schlachtensee gefrieren lässt ... Mit zarter Lakonie erzählt »Mein Jahr im Wasser« von Verlorenheit und Fremdheit, von frühen Verletzungen und kindlichen Ängsten, aber auch von seidig-klarem Wasser auf der Haut und der meditativen Wirkung, die das Schwimmen in offenen Gewässern haben kann. Am Ende lösen sich nicht alle Probleme, aber es wächst ein Gefühl von Zuhause quer über alle Kontinente hinweg.

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.
