I first read this series in 1978, and became addicted right away. Having listened to and read some of the oral histories in the Library of Congress of the dustbowl era, the Foxfire books carried that tradition forward, and documented for future generations many of the old crafts and lore that were being lost in a nation quickly moving into the technological age.

The first three are the best, in my opinion, but all of the Foxfire books are worth reading. They are on my list of most recommended boo

Love the lore and history. My grandfather's family had a lot to do with these books. I remember them talking about them when I was a kid. On to #2.

these books are the best i've ever read. i wish Eliot Wigginton could write some more. i would like to even give some of my own advice and information to the book
I loved this whole series of books. What a wonderful project to do with young people that allowed the rest of us insight into the lives of the people of this region.

This are the books I take with me into the bunker.
The documentation of building a still alone will keep me in barter after the apocalypse.
The Foxfire series is an absolute classic series on Appalachian lifeways!
So intriguing to take a step back in time.
only have the first two
