An amazing story of a long distance swimmer who swims without a wetsuit. It chronicles the the swimming career of a young woman who is passionate about her swims. When she swims, it's not a challenge, it's as if she has been set free. An inspring read. I'll never agian whine about an unheated pool or the Southern California beaches in June!
I loved this book and recommend it all the time! It is about an unlikely athlete who "conquers" the world by swimming across the most dangerous bodies of water on the globe. The determination she showed by swimming icy and/or polluted waters (and working with local governments to achieve these goals) is really inspirational.
