The remarkable and life-affirming true story of one couple’s 630-mile journey around the South West Coast Path. The Salt Path is a beautiful, powerfully honest and deeply moving memoir about overcoming adversity, the redemptive qualities of walking and nature, about survival, the meaning of ‘home’ and above all, about love.
In one devastating week, Raynor and her husband Moth lost their home of 20 years, just as a terminal diagnosis threatened to take away their future together. With nowhere else to go, they decided to walk the South West Coast Path: a 630-mile sea-swept trail from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.
This ancient, wind-battered landscape strips them of every comfort they had previously known. With very little money for food or shelter, Raynor and Moth carry only the essentials for survival on their backs.
This book gives insight to one woman’s journey that spans not only the entire South West Coast Path, but also an emotional journey of redemption. In The Salt Path, Raynor Winn allows us to discover the healing powers found in nature and the simple act of walking forward.
