The Foxfire Book by Eliot Wigginton, Anchor Press, Doubleday, New York 1972. 384 pages with index, softcover, measures 6” by 9 ¼”.

An amazing compilation of information on everything from hog dressing and how to build a log cabin by hand to folk medicine and making your own still for moonshine. Originally published under a variety of articles in the Foxfire magazine in the 60s, this treasure trove of ‘plain living’ Appalachian style instructions is fascinating reading.

Includes many black and white photos and a few instructional drawings and recipes, as if you were sitting on the stoop of an old Applachian cabin listening to the wisdom and advice of its weather-worn inhabitants. This is the first book in what became a series of similar compilations by Wigginton.

Softbound in excellent condition, all pages tight and clean, no tears or stains.
