" ... Our planet is poised on the brink of an unprecedented ecological catastrophe. Its rivers and seas are being polluted, its forests destroyed, its soil contaminated by chemicals, radiation and rubbish, and perhaps most sinister of all, even its air is being poisoned. The catalogue of disasters which man is inflicting on the Earth is a grim one which grows almost daily. But none of this is inevitable. This book is the first practical handbook which explains how we can reduce our damaging impact of the natural world. It is a book with a powerful, positive and hopeful message. Packed with information, illustrations and intelligent advice, it is a practical prescription for restoring our world to health"--Cover

The fat of the land : family farming on five acres by John Seymour( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 1995 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1970s, John Seymour's book, The Complete Book of Self Sufficiency was a huge, international best-seller, inspiring a new generation to down-shift to a new way of life. The book has remained in print ever since. But years earlier, Seymour had written and published The Fat of the Land, telling of how he and his family settled in Suffolk and began a life entirely separate from the modern world. This was a seminal book, published the year before Silent Spring, and offers a personal, practical and optimistic vision of a less-mechanized and less polluting world, one that works in harmony with nature, rather than against it. He goes on to document their life and struggles on the land in chapters on cows, pigs, vegetables and wild food in charming prose. More than fifty years on, The Fat of the Land remains an important and inspiring book, one which retains its power to make us think carefully about our own lives. This new edition comes complete with Sally Seymour's original illustrations, a foreword by Anne Seymour and a new introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
