Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they 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, via 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 every step, every encounter 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 natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

Made me feel content

It’s a real insight into cracking on. Very strong couple.

Inpuuuut ,

Amazing!

This is one of the most heartfelt books I have ever read. As I lost my own Husband of 30 years recently, all the emotions Raynor writes about each day you are with them is a day you breath in. What amazing people you are. A true inspiration to each and every one of us. This book is written with feeling, humour and emotion of each page turned. Already bought The Wild Silence.

Salted & Fetch…life’s meaning laid bare

Wonderful book that stirs the restless soul. Inspiration is drawn from each chapter and shows the reader how stripping away life’s comforts can lead to a greater feeling of sense and our place in the world. Could I do what they did….let’s see.
