The Foxfire Book Review Video
Here's a video book review on The Foxfire Book  by Eliot Wigginton. This book written in the late 1960's captures the culture and traditions of the Appalachian people and their ways. What Elliot and his students saw was the traditions, skills and lifestyle of the folks that lived in the rural communities was disappearing at a alarming rate. In this book and the rest of the Foxfire series twelve in all records rural life living skills and preserves them so future generations could remember and continue this unique way of life.

Those that give up liberty for safety deserve neither.

Hey Razor thanks for checking in!
good review. ive always liked the foxfire series. I know my mother had most the set but I don't know what happened to them. im going to start keeping my eye out for them at secondhand stores and garage sales.
