Product description

Review

A beautiful, thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, human strength and endurance (Guardian)

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)

Ray's account of their incredible journey is a tale of triumph, of hope over despair (Pick 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)

A remarkable and redemptive journey (Summer Books of 2018 Financial Times)

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. (Jackie Morris, illustrator of The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane)

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. (Richard Morrison The Times)

Uplifting and inspirational (Woman & Home)

An exquisite piece of writing (Western Morning News)
