Item description for The Foxfire 40th Anniversary Book: Faith, Family, and the Land by Angie Cheek, Lacy Hunter Nix & Foxfire Students...

Presents a collection of stories, customs, crafts, and wisdom from Appalachia, covering the traditional values of the region, personal reminiscences, descriptions of old church services, and forty years of lessons.

Publishers Description
In 1966, an English teacher and students in Northeast Georgia founded a quarterly magazine, not only as a vehicle to learn the required English curriculum, but also to teach others about the customs, crafts, traditions, and lifestyle of their Appalachian culture. Named "Foxfire" after a local phosphorescent lichen, the magazine became one of the most beloved publications in American culture.
For four decades, "Foxfire" has brought the philosophy of simple living to readers, teaching creative self-sufficiency, home crafts, and the art of natural remedies, and preserving the stories of Appalachia. This anniversary edition brings us generations of voices and lessons about the three essential Appalachian values of faith, family, and the land. We listen to elders share their own memories of how things used to be, and to the new generations eager to preserve traditional values in a more complicated world. There are descriptions of old church services, of popular Appalachian games and pastimes, and of family recipes. Rich with memories and useful lessons, this is a fitting tribute to this inspiring and practical publication that has become a classic American institution.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Foxfire 40th Anniversary Book: Faith, Family, and the Land?

Four decades of Foxfire  Feb 18, 2007
The "Foxfire 40th Anniversary Book" is a wonderful tribute to the people of Appalachia as they shared memories of their lives and culture with us. This book follows the same down-to-earth tone as the preceeding volumes. The earlier ones were very informative and enjoyable, and this one certainly lives up to that standard.
