The Salt Path
The Salt Path | Raynor Winn
In one devastating week, Raynor and her husband Moth lost their house and received a terminal diagnosis that took away their future together. With nowhere to call home, they instead embarked on a journey: 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 lays them bare, stripping away every comfort they have ever known. With almost no money for food orshelter, carrying the essentials for survival on their backs, they wild camp on beaches and clifftops. Until slowly, with every step, every encounter, and every test along the way, the walk sets them on a road of discovery. They don't know how far they will travel, but unexpectedly, they find themselves on a path to freedom. The Salt Path is an unflinchingly honest, inspiring and life-affirming true story about coming to terms with grief and the healing power of nature. Ultimately, it is a book about home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected of ways.

Not for me this book. Normally I like travel books and I‘d love to hike across England but this story was just too much. Too many setbacks for the main characters who I cared too little about to feel for them. Bitchy I know, can‘t help it 🤷🏻‍♀️

This was like a horror story for me: outdoors, insects, camping, walking, wet clothes, dirty hair, weather, no food, no home.
I‘ll be having nightmares. I think they were bonkers and nothing would make me do this.

My sister recommended this one as she loved it so much! I'm on page 17 and have used up 2 x tissues already! What a gripping and touching start! I just wanted to share it with you - time to get back to my book!

Update: I've finished the book- it was meandering in parts, but I found that completely fitting with the story and I can definitely say that I enjoyed it - now I want to go for a walk, wild camp and chat to the homeless..

Not alot happens in this book but it was so beautiful. Reminding me of the wonder and beauty of the landscape and nature. How the simple things in life can bring you the most joy and make you feel alive! The wind in your hair, rain on your face, the sun and salt on your skin, the sand between your toes. The sight of birds in the air. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It took Ray & Moth twice as long to hike the South West Coast Path as their guidebook, by Paddy Dillon, said it would. Similarly, it took me at least twice as long to read their story as I hoped. Though I‘m sure the pacing was true to life (as they weren‘t out for a leisurely stroll but walking [in their fifties] as a way to contend with their sudden homelessness & a terminal medical diagnosis), it was slow-going. Sometimes painfully so.👇🏻

monalyisha 1/2: There was far more trudging, and deliberating about what (& how) to eat & where to pitch their tent to wild camp than I expected. Upon further research, I read that this book was never intended for mass consumption; it was written as a way to remind Moth of their journey as his memory faded. This puts the amount & type of details that Ray chose to include into perspective. 9mo
monalyisha 2/2: The Salt Path wasn‘t always a joy to read; it was often a slog. But the moments filled with epiphany, sudden & simple bliss, the kindness of strangers, observations of peregrine falcons, descriptions of windswept cliffs, ruminations on the ethics of our societal & judiciary practices, & the Winn‘s eventual self-identification as “lightly salted blackberries” made it (largely) worth it. 9mo

Here to admit I don‘t always love this book the way that I want to. It can be SLOW GOING. Take the following:

“Charlestown, previously West Polmear, remains a picaresque harbor built, oddly enough, by Charles Rashleigh, who wasn‘t even slightly egotistical & changed the population from 9 lobster-pot-weaving, pipe-whittling fishermen to 3,000 warehouse workers filling cargo ships with clay, quicker than you can say “kaolin poultice anyone?”

WHAT.

A good hiking story always gives me itchy feet. I want to go out and walk in nature. This one was no different. I want to go explore the trails and towns along the South West Coastal Path. But it also brings so much more, it is also a meditation on poverty, homelessness, life, death, marriage, family, and hope. The kind of hope that can only really be found in the face of despair.

Thanks @monalyisha for the #buddyread

"It had been said; death had been acknowledged... We lay in the tent at the edge of Lyme Regis, on a patch of grass between the lobster pots and the chalets, and let death in. And life came with it. The jagged, shattered, lost fragments of our lives slowly, mercurially drawn back together."

"It was late April, the swallows were returning, the lambs were growing strong on the hillside. In the dense wood, behind the fallen larch, I glimpsed the fallow deer, no longer alone, but with four tiny frail legs next to hers. Reluctant to leave the safety of the trees she slipped back into the darkness."

Raise your hand if you‘re easily tempted into wanderlust-filled daydreams by descriptions of tiny churches. 🖐🏻

This is Culbone Church, reputed to be the smallest church in England & definitely one of the most remote. You‘ve got to come at it by foot, 1.5 miles, uphill. The woods surrounding it are filled with fairytale tunnels & are home to the rare, self-cloning, Sorbus vexans trees. It was once the site of a leper colony.

True story about a couple who, after learning the husband is terminally ill, also lose their home and livelihood.
Instead of giving up, they decide to trek 630 miles along the Coastal Path, camping in the wild with extremely limited funds and supplies.
After a slow start, their story really grew on me. It‘s about finding liberation through letting go and embracing wilderness.

One of the most exciting, new-to-me books that came to my attention as the #NewYearWhoDis matchmaker! It's a memoir about walking, the sea, a windswept coast, love, 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.“

This one is from @Singout's list!

So uplifting: an elderly couple lose their home and savings and realize one has a degenerative illness. Instead of moving into supportive housing, they scrape together what they have and walk the South West Coast Path around Cornwall and Devon in England. Honest portrayal of a sudden shift into poverty, struggling with old age, and facing death, combined with love, courage, and generosity from them and those they meet.

I finally got to experience The Salt Path, and I get why this book strikes a chord with so many people. The first chapter hit me like a ton of bricks. I can't imagine having to go through what happened to them.

The book had some up and downs for me, there were some parts where it lost my attention just a little bit, became just a tad monotonous. But on the whole the balance still came out very favourably for this book. I loved reading it.

quote
Singout
The Salt Path | Raynor Winn

What was the difference between the two stories? Only one word, but that one word in the public perception meant everything: “sold.” We could have become homeless having “sold” our home and put money in the bank and be inspirational, or we could be homeless having “lost” our home and become penniless and be social pariahs. We chose the former. Easier to have a brief passing conversation. The more times we told the lie, the less we felt the grief.

“Where Daphne du Maurier was a tenant and dreamt of Manderley, we lay homeless and penniless under the stars.” The story of a couple with nowhere else to go who set out to walk all 630 miles of the South West Coast Path. Reading this in Cornwall, walking some of the paths that had to become their home, I became completely in awe of Raynor and Moth and entirely captivated by their story.

I thought this was quite interesting, especially the fact that Moth who was suffering from a terminal cancer seemed to improve. I did, however, find it a little repetitive and I started to lose interest half way. Hats off to Moth and Ray, though. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

I read this compulsively, drawn on by their simple goal of doing something, anything, to keep moving. There are some amazing passages about the fragility of life on the edge (of the land, and of society) but also some rather patronising characterisations of the West Country.

This was like nothing Iv read before Raynor narrates the audio version and I absolutely loved it. I have so much admiration for her & mole (her husband)
When a bad investment in a friends business goes very wrong they lose everything, their home, their business, farm animals & find themselves homeless , to add to the stress mole is diagnosed with a very serious life changing illness ... they decide to walk the coast line, with just (e6 a week ⬇️

Powered_By_Plants a thin sleeping bag and the rucksack on their back they start their 600 mile journey. I found myself on many occasions swallowing an emotional lump in my throat, both are amazing and so strong ❤️ . I was also saddened to learn just how many homeless there are on our streets & how many passers by stereotyped treated the pair.

I had mixed feelings about this. I felt there was a lot of story to cram into a relatively short book. I suppose that echoes the sentiments of the couple. At times I felt like I was skimming rather than reading a story as some parts were very brief and moved on so quickly. Having said that, I did enjoy it and plan to read the follow up, The Wild Silence

Bought this travel narrative to accompany me on this weeks hiking trip - a short 70km compared to the books 1000km (that yet felt much more exhausting than what was described by the author 🙈). Unfortunately i didn‘t feel like i got to know ray and moth too well and felt left hanging a bit. A nice holiday read but no masterpiece. 🥾🏕

I have read my second non-fiction book this month. Funnily enough it is similar to Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
Raynor and Moth decide to walk the South West Coast Path. From Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall. We find out they have just lost their home and business in a court case and then Moth gets the news he is terminally ill.
It is really good book, I loved hearing about how they coped, the people they met, the scenery and history.
