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.

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!

TheKidUpstairs Ooohh! I just picked this up from a Little Free Library, purely because the cover kept drawing me in! 3w
monalyisha @TheKidUpstairs It looks so good, right?! Are you planning to start it anytime soon? I‘ve got some things on-deck already but maybe we need a buddy read. 😉 3w

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.

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.

Marvellous, absolutely bloody marvellous! 🌟

Cannot believe these two amazing humans and what they fought for, what they went through, and lost….but what they gained in return of losing their family home, their belongings, and what they thought was life, was NOTHING compared to the amazing heartaches, triumphs, power of nature and adventure they embarked on, side by side through thick and thin, meeting all sorts of people along the way! 🌻

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. Also had rage when tea rooms wanted Q9 per bottle to fill from the taps!!So greedy ? first #bookspinbigo square @TheAromaofBooks 10mo

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.

Finished this today. The story is intriguing; made homeless Raynor and her husband Moth decide to walk the 630 mile South West coast path. Unfortunately the writing wasn‘t great, was quite repetitive in places and I ran out of patience for them. 5/10 wasn‘t awful, wasn‘t brilliant

Not ashamed to say I shed a tear at the end. Such a powerful book and a story that needed telling about the hidden homeless. Makes me feel very blessed and lucky - and acts as a reminder not to take anything for granted. However, I am now craving fish and chips.

Storm Brendan is doing it‘s thing out there, and I‘m grateful to have a non-leaking roof over my head. Also, I adored this book.

Due to a bad business decision, Ray and Moth lose their farm, their home and their business. With just a week to clear out, Moth is diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease. So, obviously, they decide to walk the SW coast path. And it changes them. 👇

rockpools This is a beautifully written tale of two people putting one foot in front of the other, absorbing the world around them and accepting loss. It‘s told with warmth and humour, and an awareness of how easy it would be to sink into self-pity (it doesn‘t). And, without ever hammering the point, it takes a look at what homelessness means in Britain today, and how crazy the narrative around homelessness actually is.

Stunning.

Where Daphne du Maurier was a tenant and dreamt of Manderley, we lay homeless and penniless under the stars. We had lost everything except our children and each other, but we had the wet grass and the rhythm of the sea on the rocks. Could we survive on that? We knew the answer, but to give this up and return to the world didn‘t seem like the answer either.

I tend to love “walking memoirs” and I‘m definitely adding this one to my shelf. While losing one‘s home and job and learning one‘s spouse is terminally ill all at once might leave the typical person hopeless, author Raynor Winn and Moth find hope and meaning by walking the 630-mile coastal trail. Google some of the places they walk through- it‘s beautiful country- and you might find yourself planning your next walk there, too.

After a bad business investment, the author and her husband are bankrupt, losing their home, business, and money. Shortly after, her husband is diagnosed with a degenerative disease for which there is no treatment. They spend the summer hiking the southwest coast pathway. There are great descriptions of nature and the struggles they faced, but also an appreciation for living a life more in the moment and renewing their faith in each other. 3.5⭐️

I enjoyed this story of two “old” (50) married hikers (as they are consistently described by others), because A. I am that age and B. it centers around a fear most people at this age have, i.e. losing “everything.” I also enjoy nature writing so that was a big plus. It has some repetitiveness, but overall it was an enjoyable listen!

I think many of us fantasize being free from society, but damn those pesky details like eating. 😏

#BookMail Pt3 This memoir is from a woman who loses everything except her partner & a love of walking. Within a short period, Raynor loses her family farmhouse, her savings & her husband Moth is diagnosed with a terminal brain disease. Becoming homeless at their age could have broken them, instead they use the last of their money to buy a tent, sleeping bags & backpacks, and set off to walk the South West Coast Path from Somerset to Cornwall.

I read this memoir yesterday, about a married couple in their mid 50‘s who are hit with TWO life changing events in the same week. Due to a poor investment, Moth & Ray find themselves literally homeless with no savings they chose to hike South West Coast Path, a 630-mile sea-swept trail from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall. Living out in the wild, with bravery & honesty ( and some stupidity) they embark on a life altering journey. 👇🏼

Cinfhen It‘s a story full of determination and deep love. It‘s hard to imagine how a well lived life can spiral so quickly. Will make you think twice about how you view others. This was a gift from my wonderful friend @TrishB 🙌🏻
