Okay, there's nothing spectacular about swimming ten days in a row unless it's down the Hudson River from Albany to the Battery in New York City and the record is held by a DOG! What to do but take $10,000 out of the bank, book a boat, and start stroking! Along the way, swimmer Skip Storch confronts confounding tides, adverse weather, alcoholic support crews, invasive fauna, mechanical failures, jealousy, financial woes, physical exhaustion but sees a successful swim strategy emerge. It's a play. A long play; one might even say an epic play for it was an epic swim. It was a beautiful swim that saw a daily swims at sunrise and sunset against a backdrop of the beautiful Hudson River valley where the legions of boaters and their communities applauded his efforts. Readers will find an insight into the working of a staged swim that will allow them to join vicariously in the journey or wish they had; break out your Speedos!
