The Foxfire Book: Hog Dressing, Log Cabin Building, Mountain Crafts and Foods, Planting by
the Signs, Snake Lore, Hunting Tales, Faith Healing, and Moonshining
By Eliot WIGGINTON and his students, editors
Interviews and essays describe the way of life and crafts of pioneer America still surviving in the Appalachian region. In the late 1960's, Eliot WIGGINTON and his students created the magazine Foxfire in an effort to record and preserve the traditional folk culture of the Southern Appalachians. This is the original book compilation of Foxfire material which introduces Aunt Arie and her contemporaries and includes log cabin building, hog dressing, snake lore, mountain crafts and food, and "other affairs of plain living."
