Rate this:
First published in 1972, The Foxfire Book was a surprise bestseller that brought Appalachia's philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers. Whether you wanted to hunt game, bake the old-fashioned way, or learn the art of successful moonshining, The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center had a contact who could teach you how with clear, step-by-step instructions.

Chock full of the wit and wisdom that has become the Foxfire trademark, this tenth volume in  the acclaimed series is on oral history of  Appalachian lives and traditions, homespun crafts, and folk arts including gourd carving and chairmaking.
