The Salt Path is Raynor Wynn’s account of walking and wild camping along England’s 630-mile South West Coast Path with her husband. You could think of it as a British version of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, except in this case the Wynns take to the path because they suddenly find themselves homeless in middle age. While the author never shrinks from examining how society chooses to ignore or degrade those who lack homes, the book is mostly a meditation on the healing powers of nature. —Terese Heidenwolf, director of research and instructional services, libraries
