A Great Series on how on people use to do thing when they were mostly self sufficient, and not store dependent different volumes cover everything from snake handling. to log cabin building to planting by the seasons, a must for DIY'ers and survivalists. Check out for individual contents.

Recommends it for: People interested in religious matters
For me, not as good as the others in the series so far - I like the variety and the practicality of a lot of the material, and this volume is all about the culture's religious beliefs and practices, which I don't share and in which I am not nearly as interested. This would probably be a good read for anyone who is particularly interested in Christianity or religion in general.

This are some strange books. They are educational in nature, but sometimes they go meandering about in some places that are uncharted territory for most of us. There are a lot of lost skill sets that are covered in these books as well as a lot of unusual traditions. Sometimes the writing can be rather dry, but they are awesome with the knowledge factor.

Has a lot of information about the different denominations in the Appalachia. It's a pretty good read

Well, I was reading it. But I gave it to Leslie to read about shape note singing. Now she is passing it on to another member of her shape note group. I'll get it back sometime.
