Farley Mowat on importance of meat and fat

Farlew Mowatt photoFarley Mowat — Born in 1921, Farley Mowat is a conservationist and one of Canada’s most widely read authors.

Most people know him for his experience of living with Arctic wolves, about which he wrote a 1963 book, Never Cry Wolf that was made into a film in 1983.

If you are curious about what to eat, his 1952 book People of the Deer is instructive. In it, he recounts his time living with the Ilhalmiut people of northern Canada.

Ryan Koch has some interesting excerpts and observations on this book. I found most interesting his detailed descriptions of the traditional Ilhalmiut diet, which relied on meat and included plenty of animal fat.
