Join Raynor and Moth as their journey continues in the incredible and uplifting Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller
From the million-copy bestselling author of the phenomenon and­ 85-week Sunday Times bestseller The Salt Path

_______
'It was the land, the earth, the deep humming background to my very being'
In 2016, days before they were unjustly evicted from their home, Raynor Winn was told her husband Moth was dying.
Instead of giving up they embarked on a life-changing journey: walking the 630-mile South West Coast Path, living by their wits, determination and love of nature.
But all journeys must end and when the couple return to civilisation they find that four walls feel like a prison, cutting them off from the sea and sky that sustained them - that had saved Moth's life.
So when the chance to rewild an old Cornish farm comes their way, they grasp it, hoping they'll not only reconnect with the natural world but also find themselves once again on its healing path . . .
