            Where We Swim

            'I'd wanted to remember why it was we swam in the first place - to remember the pleasure of immersing in an element other than air.' Ingrid Horrocks had few aspirations to swimming mastery, but she had always loved being in the water. She set out on a solo swimming journey, th...en abandoned it for a different kind of swimming altogether - one which led her to more deeply examine relationships, our ecological crisis, and responsibilities to collective care. Why do people swim, and where, how, with whom? Where We Swim ranges from solitary swims in polluted lakes and rivers in Aotearoa New Zealand, to swims in pools in Medellin, Phoenix and the Peruvian Amazon. Near Brighton, Horrocks is joined by an imagined community of early women swimmers; back home she takes her first tentative swim after lockdown. Part memoir, part travel and nature writing, this book is about being a daughter, sister, partner, mother, and above all a human animal living among other animals - sheep and cows, whales and manatee, elks and ibises. 'Where We Swim is a book about family that travels by water in the body of a swimmer. Horrocks is someone with an appetite for adventure but she is also the mother of young children and daughter of older parents. She brilliantly contrasts heady plunges of bodily experience with chilling alarms about family. This book is filled with wanderlust, but also homesickness for a past when our waterways didn't have high coliform counts and Wellington's bays weren't soupy with saIp, and for the whole swimmable world it so vividly remembers.' -Elizabeth Knox

            From his upbringing with seven siblings in rural New Zealand, experiences in Ireland as a child, to his rise through the rugby ranks with Taranaki and the Hurricanes, Beauden Barrett will give an insight into what has made him the player he's become, the setbacks he had along the... way and the choices he had to make. One big decision as an 18-year old changed the course of his career and, instead of being lost to New Zealand rugby entirely, set Beauden on the path towards becoming an All Black. Now widely seen as one of the best players in the game, he could have been an AFL star in Australia if it weren't for one phone call. He may have gone from high school to the All Blacks in the space of three years, but the path was far from smooth. Packed with tips and skills, along with drills for different ages and abilities to help young players progress their game, Beauden will also offer advice on how to become a better player off the field, how he learned to adapt to life as a professional sportsman at such a young age and who helped him along the way. Beaudy - Skills, Drills and the Path to the Top is an aspirational read for fans young and old. About the Author: Rikki Swannell has been a sports broadcaster for more than 15 years, and now works in a freelance capacity as a commentator and reporter. She can largely be heard on Sky Sport, where she is a regular commentator on netball, rugby and tennis, and on the World 7s series, working for World Rugby. She started her career as a journalist at Radio Sport and Newstalk ZB and has covered everything from snooker and darts, to cricket and rowing, Olympic and Commonwealth Games and various World Cups. Since going it alone in 2016, Rikki has diversified to become an accomplished event MC, long form print and online writer, media advisor and trainer.
