The Fat of the Land

The Fat of the Land


A new edition published by Little Toller Books. It includes a wonderful new foreword by Anne and an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, along with more of Sally's artwork and family photographs. 

"A truly inspirational classic. Everyone should read this book. First published in 1961 it has inspired thousands of people to live a little bit lighter on this earth. If you are interested in a more self reliant life or just reading about a family doing it - buy this. You will not be disappointed."

"This is the book that inspired "The Good Life" TV series, and is a fascinating and wonderful insight into the life of John Seymour as he becomes self-sufficient. It is the most uplifting and entertaining book and I would recommend it to everybody."
