Surviving the Sea of Life is the extraordinary story of one of Australia's legends - Linda McGill. Linda's life has been an inspiring victory against fate - surviving her mother's tragic death, a scandalous ban from the Tokyo Olympics along with Dawn Fraser, a near fatal car accident and a devastating divorce.

Then there are the triumphs, including claiming the title as the first Australian to swim the English Channel, record-breaking marathon swims and the honour of an MBE.

At times funny and always entertaining, Linda describes in detail her life with her close friends - swimming legends Don Talbot, Dawn Fraser and Ilsa Konrad to name a few. She writes about her world travels meeting the rich and famous, sportstars, filmstars, politicians and millionaires.

The final chapter deals with Linda's latest battle - against the skin cancer borne from a life lived in the water, in an age unaware of the dangers of sun exposure.
