Abstract:

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 Appalachia. 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 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, popular Appalachian games and pastimes, and 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. Book jacket.
