The birth of the Foxfire Collection took the form of a freshman student writing project at the Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School in Rabun Gap, GA in 1966. The students interviewed their relatives and family members and documented how life in rural Appalachia had changed over time. Covering topics as diverse as wagon wheel making, hog dressing, and faith healing the Foxfire series stands as an outstanding record of the traditions, skills, and folklore of rural America. This set in its entirety is an important collection of American experiences and wisdom.

I've always wanted these books but had never purchased them. They are an outstanding encyclopedia of mountain culture from the past which should never be forgotten and is still of great value today.
Complete series of Foxfire handbooks. Its a great combination of folklore, tradition and real-world survival skills. You will learn how to make use of just about anything you can get your hands on. BTW, What a great place to shop. Whether in person or online, the customer service is top notch. Great American-made products!
I had the first reprinted edition of this book. Thought it was worth the investment to get the whole set. DD made that possible. Thanks y'all.
What Elliot Wigginton started in his classroom is a treasure. What I didn’t expect was that my 16 y/o daughter would be interested. I got these as a gift for my husband, and he had to pry them away from her!
Solid paperback bindings and priceless contents.
Fascinating and detailed history of Appalachian traditions and lives. So fortunate that this slowly disappearing part of America was captured in such thoughtful detail before it is gone forever.
