About this book

In the 1970s, John Seymour's book The Complete Book of Self Sufficiency was a huge, international bestseller, inspiring a generation to 'down-shift' to a new way of life. The book has remained in print ever since.

But years earlier John Seymour wrote the story of how his family settled in Suffolk and began their self-sufficient life separate from the modern world. The Fat of the Land (1961) is a seminal book, published the year before Silent Spring, and decades before the organic movement got of the ground.

More than fifty years on, The Fat of the Land remains an important and inspiring book. Retaining its power to make us think carefully about the food we eat and the way we live, the story of the Seymour family offers both a personal, practical and optimistic vision of a less-mechanised and less polluting world. Little Toller is delighted to be able to republish this classic of the genre, complete with Sally Seymour's illustrations and cover, and with a new introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
