Bookworming: The Foxfire Book

The Foxfire Book, Eliot Wigginton, ***
This is a collection of magazine articles about Appalachian living around three to five generations ago, depending on the reader's age. It is a mix of how-to articles of questionable quality, stories, and tall tales. The depth isn't really enough to provide instruction on its own, so better to consider it as preserving slices of life from a time increasingly distant. Best for folks with some connection to the area, or interested in the subject matter.
