"Just days after Raynor Winn learns that Moth, her husband of thirty-two years, is terminally ill, their house and farm are taken away, along with 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, through 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 and life-affirming journey. Powerfully written and unflinchingly honest, The Salt Path is ultimately a portrayal of home--how it can be lost, rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways"--… (més)

Love this book!

It's a love story, a morality tale, a how-to guide, a nature book, and an adventure story. A moving celebration of life and soul. Incredibly well-written, breathtakingly poetic, outrageously wise and funny, as well as timeless. A book I need to buy and have on hand to read again and again.

A mixture of Tolkien's The Hobbit, Ben Montgomery's Grandma Gatewood's Walk, the movie Nomadland which I have read and seen, and probably some excellent legal, medical, science, and nature books I haven't yet discovered.

This book is what writing and reading are all about.

The first chapter is harrowing but gripping, the rest of the book encouraging, uplifting, beautifully written and even contains a little low-key humour here and there.

There's a lot of description of a difficult and lengthy coastal walk, but the main theme is of change and development. It's the story of a couple, homeless through no fault of their own, who decide not to become objects of charity or welfare, but to set out on a courageous walk. It's all the more astonishing because the author's husband has just been diagnosed with a progressive, terminal illness.

I read this because it was allocated for this month's reading group, and thought it excellent. Very highly recommended.

Very descriptive of nature, feelings and love.
A couples farm is repossessed her husband has an incurable disease with no councol house they go on a long coastal walk half starve, deprive themselves and meet a range of people a great read. ( )

An oddly affecting hiking memoir, which always sound so formulaic, but the setup here is that the author and her husband lost their home (which was also their livelihood) as part of a bad investment at the same time he was diagnosed with a terminal disease, so they just said fuck it and decided to walk the 630-mile path around the southwesternmost tip of England with not-great gear and almost no money. Which sounds like it could be all kinds of trite, but it was good—I liked it, anyway. Wynn has a very low-key style, and it feels more like a story you'd tell someone than a self-consciously literary effort. The fact that they weren't hobbyist hikers made it interesting—they were effectively homeless, and apparently looked it too, and people reacted accordingly. She doesn't go too deep into the civics of that, which I think was wise—as dire as their situation was, what they were doing was still a choice—but there was a certain desperation to what they were about. And it's more hopeful than dark, for all that. I suspect this just hit me at the right time, but I liked it and feel a bit soothed for having read it. ( )

An amazing gripping tale of survival after tragedy inspires and educates us.

Part One: Into the Light

Tell me about a man,

Muse, tell me how he wandered and was lost ...

Homer, The Odyssey
Part Two: The South West Coast Path

While some might be daunted at the prospect of walking, for weeks on end, staying somewhere different every night, while keeping themselves fed and watered, it is simply a matter of careful planning.

-Paddy Dillon, The South West Coast Path: From Minehead to South Haven Point.
Part Three: The Long Fetch

Often, for undaunted courage, fate spares the man it has not already marked.

-Seamus Heaney, Beowulf
Part Four: Lightly Salted Blackberries

Spoilt for choice - which one to throw,

which to pocket and take home.

-Simon Armitage, "The Stone Beach"
Part Five: Choices

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread.

-John Muir, The Yosemite

Packing a rucksack when you're fifty just isn't the same as when you're twenty.

Thirty years on and I had the aches of wenty years of manual labor, damage that never quite heals but stays malevolently in the background. (p. 22)
"I think I can feel homelessness now, like a balloon cut free in the wind. I'm scared.

"I'd hug you, Ray, but I can't sit up."

"Shall we eat the meatballs? I'm sure they weight the most." (p. 41)
The path led into the valley and down to Culbone Church, the smallest church in England, ancient, and once the site of a leper colony. I sat in the graveyard and let the utterly peaceful place wash over me. It was profoundly spiritual, nothing to do with God or religion, but a deeply human spirituality. (p. 45)
"Do we have a plan?"

"Course we do. We walk until we stop walking, and maybe on the way we find some kind of future." (p. 48)
Rather than layers of sweaty salt, my legs were crawling in ladybirds.

But they were too special and the shiny red wonders too numerous: there had to be more to it than that; they had to have a meaning for us.

No, I couldn't be scientific about it, and clung to the myth of the lady bird bringing good luck, carrying it with me in a rosy, spotted glow. I watched the pink aura lift from Moth and tried to believe in miracles. (p. 79)
