Evening with Raynor Winn Author of The Salt Path

An evening with Raynor Winn author of The Salt Path

The remarkable and life-affirming true story of one couple’s 630 mile journey around the South West Coast Path. The Salt Path is a beautiful, powerfully honest and deeply moving memoir about overcoming adversity, the redemptive qualities of walking and nature, about survival, the meaning of ‘home’ and above all, about love.

In one devastating week, Raynor and her husband Moth lost their home of 20 years, just as a terminal diagnosis threatened to take away their future together. With nowhere else to go, they decided 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 strips them of every comfort they had previously known. With very little money for food or shelter, Raynor and Moth carry everything on their backs and wild camp on beaches and clifftops. But slowly, with every step, every encounter, and every test along the way, the walk sets them on a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is a piece of nature writing in the form of a memoir. Born out of extraordinary circumstances, this book gives insight to one woman’s journey that spans not only the entire South West Coast Path but also an emotional journey of redemption. In The Salt Path Raynor Winn allows us to discover the healing powers found in nature and the simple act of walking forward.

Since completing the South West Coast Path, Raynor Winn has become a regular long-distance walker and writes about nature, homelessness and wild camping. She lives in Cornwall with her husband Moth and their dog, Monty, still on the South West Coast Path. This is her first book.
