This is a book invaluable information and stories from America past. Part folklore part instruction, this book is one of many in the series that enlightens us about the basics of subsistence we might all do well to know.
All the Foxfire books should be used as texts in a school setting.
 
Foxfire book I  Feb 24, 2008
Since I ordered this book, we have really enjoyed reading all the information about dressing a hog even to the folk remedies. If this is of interest to you, then you will want this book. Although, we have butchered hogs in the past, this book has plenty of information for a beginner.
 
Reliving the Past  Sep 4, 2007
If you are interested in learning how our forefathers lived without the modern day conveniences that we enjoy today, this book is a must read. You will learn how they survived without much income and you could learn something beneficial that you never knew.
