內容簡介


一對無家可歸的中年夫妻,踏上一段長達630英里的救贖之旅。提振人心的故事,入圍2018年Costa傳記獎,同時也是《星期天泰晤士報》暢銷書。

「一個關於無家可歸、人類力量與堅毅的抒情故事,美麗而發人深省。」- 《衛報》

結縭32年的Raynor與Moth,因為聽信朋友的投資建議而破產,就在Moth被診斷出大腦皮質基底核退化症這個無藥可醫的絕症後幾天,法院查封了他們的農場,奪走他們維生的工具。夫妻倆一無所有,Moth的健康歲月也所剩無多,他們卻毅然決然地踏上綿延630英里的徒步之旅,從英格蘭的薩默塞特,經過德文郡與康瓦耳,最終抵達多塞特 - 這個以風勢強勁而聞名的西南海岸小徑。

他們賣掉能賣的東西,網購了帳篷與睡袋,背包裡僅僅裝著基本的維生物品,靠著Moth每周的社福補貼48英鎊度日,他們沒有錢在收費的營區過夜,只能在野地搭營,在這個有著懸崖峭壁、大海與天空,飽受風霜的古道上所遇見的人、事、物,都使他們踏出更堅定的步伐,也使得這段徒步之旅成為令人難忘的旅程。

Salt Path是誠實且堅定生命的真實故事,夫妻倆面對痛苦,也感受大自然的治癒能力。它更是一幅家的肖像畫,描繪它可以輕易地消失,也可以用最令人意外的方式重建與再次被探索。

The uplifting true story of the couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD & WAINWRIGHT GOLDEN BEER BOOK PRIZE 2018

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

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with 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.

'Mesmerising. It is one of the most uplifting, inspiring books that I've ever read' i

'A thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, strength and endurance' The Week

'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

'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

'The landscape is magical: shape-shifting seas and smugglers' coves; myriads of sea birds and mauve skies. Raynor writes exquisitely . . . It's a tale of triumph: of hope over despair; of love over everything' The Sunday Times
