Waterstones Says

The author of the beloved bestsellers The Salt Path and The Wild Silence documents her and her husband Moth's most ambitious journey yet, as they walk from the north-west corner of Scotland down the south-west coast path, reflecting on community and the environment along the way.

Longlisted for the James Cropper Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing 2023

Raynor knows that her husband Moth's health is declining, getting worse by the day. She knows of only one cure. It worked once before. But will he - can he? - set out with her on another healing walk?

Being one with nature saved them in their darkest hour and their hope is that it can work its magic again. As they set out on their incredible thousand-mile journey back to the familiar shores of the South West Coast Path, Raynor and Moth map the landscape of an island nation facing an uncertain path ahead.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Raynor Winn has done it again. She's achieved a miracle, defying all odds and walking 1,000 miles with her beloved husband Moth. But she has also given her vast army of fans - both armchair hikers and the real thing - another wondrous book, full of compassion, humour, insights, closeness to nature and true, bloody-minded grit. An inspiration. - Isabella Tree, author of Wilding

As well as a portrait of a telepathic marriage of true minds, and a snapshot of a fretful island, this is a soaring lament and a tub-thumping tirade - for all that is being lost, for all that may yet be saved - Telegraph

An inspiring and beautifully written story of hope and healing . . . We, her readers, are privileged to walk alongside her - Countryfile

An inspirational story of love and endurance; of trails offering links to ancient times. But it's clear-eyed, too, on the future we're shaping - Telegraph, 'Best travel books to buy for Christmas 2022'

Another heartwarming odyssey, this time on one of the wildest walks in Britain . . . Winn seems to have a bird's-eye view of Britain - a map at her feet, a keen eye for detail, particularly for social injustice. Hers is a voice of empathy and integrity - GUARDIAN

Fans of The Salt Path will love this moving continuation of Raynor and her husband Moth's journey . . . Alongside beautiful nature writing, there are thought-provoking observations on our countryside and the threat it is under - Good Housekeeping

A tale of remarkable resilience and nature writing at its best - i

Their journey from remote Scotland to the South West coast Path makes for inspiring reading - Boundless

Each step is recorded in luminous prose - Wanderlust

A captivating reflection on nature and the lines that divide and shape countries and people - Sainsbury's Magazine

If you enjoyed The Salt Path . . . you'll love Raynor Winn's latest book, Landlines - Yours Magazine

The reader . . . may struggle to keep a dry eye - Geographical

Winn has a gift for making her account profoundly human . . . In exploring what it means to be seeing a landscape possibly for the last time, it achieves moments of rare vision and compassion - Spectator

If you followed Raynor and husband Moth on The Salt Path, you will thrill to join them on this epic walk, from Scotland's wild and beautiful Cape Wrath Trail. Miracles might just happen when you put your best foot forward - Saga Magazine

I like the realism of her writing, about all the practicalities and discomforts, the midge bites, the blisters and the endless comforting cups of tea. All of this is underpinned by the deep love of a long marriage. Winn writes with a personal and passionate appreciation of nature - Perceptive Travel
