Description of this Book

In one devastating week, Raynor and her husband Moth lost theirhouse and received a terminal diagnosis that took away their future together.With nowhere to call home, they instead embarked on a journey: to walk theSouth West Coast Path, a 630-mile sea-swept trail from Somerset to Dorset, viaDevon and Cornwall.This ancient, wind-battered landscape lays them bare, strippingaway every comfort they have ever known. With almost no money for food orshelter, carrying the essentials for survival on their backs, they wild camp onbeaches and clifftops. Until slowly, with every step, every encounter, andevery test along the way, the walk sets them on a road of discovery. They don'tknow how far they will travel, but unexpectedly, they find themselves on a pathto freedom.The Salt Path is an unflinchingly honest, inspiring andlife-affirming true story about coming to terms with grief and the healingpower of nature. Ultimately, it is a book about home, and how it can be lost,rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected of ways.? ???

Author's Bio

Farmer's daughter Raynor Winn worked as a trainee clerk in a magistrate's court, while studying for a law degree in her spare time, until she traded in her urban life to acquire and restore a ruined farm in Wales. The farm became her home and her business for 20 years. Since her homeless period, she has become a regular long-distance walker and has written about her homelessness for Big Issue and Pavement magazines. A prolific reader and lifelong nature lover, Raynor now lives in Cornwall with her husband Moth and their dog. The author and her husband are planning further extreme walks.
