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.
The seventh Foxfire volume explores the traditions of mountain religious heritage–including ministers, revivals, baptisms, gospel-singing, faith healing, camp meetings, snake handling–and more.
The Foxfire Fund is a nonprofit organization that has been preserving and fostering Appalachian culture through its bestselling series of anthologies, starting with The Foxfire Book in the early 1970s. The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center is located in Mountain City, Georgia. www.foxfire.org
