Product description

Review

A beautiful, thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, human strength and enduranceGuardian

An astonishing narrative of two people dragging themselves from the depths of despair along some of the most dramatic landscapes in the country, looking for a solution to their problems and ultimately finding themselves. ― Independent

A gem of a bookGuardian, Best Books of Summer

This is what you need to read right now to muster hope and resilience. A beautiful story and a reminder that humans can endure adversityStylist

Ray's account of their incredible journey is a tale of triumph, of hope over despairPick of the paperbacks, The Sunday Times

The landscape is magical, shape-shifting seas and smugglers' coves; myriad sea birds and mauve skies . . .
It's a tale of triumph: of hope over despair; of love over everything . . . home was no longer about bricks and mortar. It was a state of mind ― The Sunday Times

An inspirational nature memoir for fans of H is for Hawk about losing everything and finding yourself between the elements of sea and sky Waterstones

The Salt Path is
a life-affirming tale of enduring love that smells of the sea and tastes of a rich life. With beautiful, immersive writing, it is a story heart-achingly and beautifully told.

The most inspirational book of this year . . . In some ways The Salt Path reads like the ultimate drop-out odyssey, except that this journey isn't a life choice . . . What the book chiefly conveys is the human capacity for endurance and the regenerative power of nature . . . The Salt Path also serves as a reminder that Britain is a land criss-crossed by footpaths and that we take this 140,000-mile national glory for granted at our peril . . . The Salt Path has reminded me to scrape last year's mud from my walking boots and get rambling again. I hope it has the same impact on millions of others.The Times

This
beautiful, meditative book should give us all a sense of our possible braveries: offering us an answer to the "what if?" questions - "what if we lost absolutely everything, what would we do?" . . . An extraordinary testament to love, hope and resilience.

A fabulous read, inspiring and life-affirming. If you're not already walking the coastal path, this book will make you want to set-off immediately. It is a hymn to the power of love, sear-air and the natural beauty of Cornwall to heal and nurture. It's an absolute joyCornwall Life

Mesmerising. It is one of the most uplifting, inspiring books that I've ever read ― i (The paper for today)

Filled with wry humour, this is a wonderfully uplifting and touching bookGuardian

The Salt Path broke my heart and put it back together again over and over. Beautiful writing, and such a sharp eye - both for nature and for people. It's hopeful and sad and honest and I LOVED it.

Harnesses the wildness of rock, sky and coastal walking in life-affirming prose -- Emma Stonex ― Guardian

Radiant, soaring, heartstring-tuggingBBC Countryfile

A
remarkable account of the healing power of landscape and the resilience of the human spirit. I felt the rain on my face and heard the waves pounding on the sand.

InspirationalGood Housekeeping

The Salt Path pummelled me like Atlantic winds. It carried me along on a rain-soaked, sun-burnt, despair-infused, hope-driven walk. The writing is at times raw, poetic, funny, shocking. It is consistently honest, vulnerable, clear. I finished the book reminded of the importance of really hearing people's stories, of the healing power of the natural world, and of our individual and collective now. ― The Ecologist

An inspirational and lyrically observed memoir on the regenerative power of walking in nature, as well as a reminder that material things are much less important than we sometimes think.
