Raynor Winn

Raynor Winn is a long-distance walker and writer; her first book The Salt Path was a Sunday Times bestseller in 2018. Winn and her husband Moth, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness called corticobasal degeneration, became homeless after a bad investment and decided to walk the 630-mile (1,010 km) South West Coast Path. The Salt Path was shortlisted for the 2018 Wainwright Prize and the 2018 Costa Book Awards in the "Biography" category. The judges described it as "An absolutely brilliant story that needs to be told about the human capacity to endure and keep putting one foot in front of another. In May 2019 The Salt Path won the inaugural RSL Christopher Bland Prize. In September 2019 it was the number one bestselling book in UK independent bookstores. Winn also writes about nature, homelessness and wild camping and her second book Wild Silence will be published by Michael Joseph in spring 2020.

Samenvatting

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER AS SEEN ON THIS MORNING AND IN THE TELEGRAPH Join Raynor and Moth on their remarkable 1000-mile walk from Scotland to the South West Coast Path in this powerful account of our country's land, and the people that make it FROM THE MILLION-COPY SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE SALT PATH AND THE WILD SILENCE '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 'Another heartwarming odyssey, this time on one of the wildest walks in Britain . . . [Raynor's] is a voice of empathy and integrity' GUARDIAN 'Raynor Winn has done it again. Another wondrous book, full of compassion, humour, insights, closeness to nature and true, bloody-minded grit. An inspiration' ISABELLA TREE, author of WILDING 'A tale of remarkable resilience and nature writing at its best' i ___________ Some people live to walk. Raynor and Moth walk to live . . . Raynor Winn 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? The Cape Wrath Trail is over two hundred miles of gruelling terrain through Scotland's remotest mountains and lochs. But the lure of the wilderness and the beguiling beauty of the awaiting glens draw them northwards. Being one with nature saved them in their darkest hour and their hope is that it can work its magic again. They embark on an incredible thousand-mile journey from Scotland back to the familiar shores of the South West Coast Path. From Northumberland to the Yorkshire moors, Wales to the South West, Raynor and Moth map with each step the landscape of an island nation facing an uncertain path ahead. In Landlines, she records in luminous prose the strangers and friends, wilderness and wildlife they encounter on the way - it's a journey that begins in fear but can only end in hope. ___________ '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 '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 PRAISE FOR RAYNOR WINN: 'A beautiful, thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, human strength and endurance' GUARDIAN 'An astonishing narrative' INDEPENDENT 'A tale of triumph: of hope over despair; of love over everything' SUNDAY TIMES 'The most inspirational book of this year' THE TIMES 'A beautiful, luminous and magical piece of writing' RACHEL JOYCE 'You feel the world is a better place because Raynor and Moth are in it' THE TIMES 'An uplifting, illuminating read' DAILY MIRROR 'Brilliant, powerful and touching' STEPHEN MOSS

  • Geweldig boek, zoals we intussen gewend zijn van Raynor Winn.

    De tocht die Raynor Winn en haar man Moth ondernemen, is gebaseerd op de wanhoop bij het voortschrijden van Moth's ziekte en de hoop dat een nieuwe langeafstandstocht de zo gewenste verbetering brengt. De beschrijving van de landschappen, de problemen en ontberingen, de nodige positieve ontmoetingen en de verandering die zich opnieuw voltrekt, is inspirerend. Raynor Winn beschrijft daarbij ook de gevolgen van menselijke acties op de natuur en wat er daardoor verloren gaat. Tenslotte, ik heb dit boek in de oorspronkelijke engelstalige versie gelezen, haar woordkeus is gewoonweg prachtig. Een geboren schrijfster!

  • Walking England

    Mooi verslag van de laatste wandelingen die het echtpaar maakt, de landschapsbeschrijvingen, de ontmoetingen met anderen, de schets van de Britse maatschappij die veel mensen uit het systeem duwt.
