There are ways to begin walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast. Things that must be done. It's compulsory. It's written in the rules. First you must stride purposefully to the starting point. You must fill your lungs with a deep breath. You must have a photograph taken next to the sign, monument or obelisk that marks the beginning of the trail. And you must proclaim loudly and clearly to all who will listen... "And so it begins!" Of course it's best to do all that whilst there is no one else watching. And preferably whilst not wearing waterproof trousers that are three sizes too small for you. One Coast to Another is the truly inspirational, heart-warming and awe-inspiring book of two thirty somethings who follow hundreds of other people walking from one side of the country to another, just because it's there. Following Alfred Wainwright's route they traverse fells, get stuck in bog, get wet, dry off, drink pints, get dismayed at the lack of pies and wear bandanas of dubious design for 190 miles with one aim and one aim alone. To get a fridge magnet at the end. What greater reason for doing it, could there be? This second edition also includes a guide to planning your own Coast to Coast walk.

Bring nature into your home with the uplifting true story of the couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline. 'This is what you need right now to muster hope and resilience . . . a beautiful story and a reminder that humans can endure adversity' Stylist 'A beautiful book, it really lives up to the hype . . . an enjoyable, gentle yet moving read' Pandora Sykes on The High Low GUARDIAN BEST BOOKS OF SUMMER 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.
