Classroom project turned publishing phenomenon
First published in 1972, The Firefox Book is the original compilation of the choicest stories published in the iconic magazine founded by teacher Eliot Wigginton and his Appalachian students. Much more than a "how to" book, Foxfire is a publishing phenomenon and way of life, teaching creative self-sufficiency, the art of natural remedies, handicrafts and other country folkways. You might dip in to the chapter about building a log cabin, making a hamper of white oak splits, cooking leather breeches beans and corn pone, or forecasting winter by wildlife. If you miss the good ol' days, yearn for independence and self-sufficiency, or love a daring hunting yarn, The Foxfire Book belongs in your library.
