The uplifting true story of the couple who lost the whole lot and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.
‘A beautiful, thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, human strength and endurance’ Guardian
Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally sick, their home is taken away they usually lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, by the use of Devon and Cornwall.
Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through each and every step, each and every encounter and each and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.
The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the flora and fauna. In the long run, this can be a portrayal of home, and how it may be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.
