The Foxfire Books

This is our Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page for The Foxfire Books series.
Our customer service staff has selected the Foxfire Book series because these books are an important recorded chronicle of useful country living information and are of historical value. A truly unusual and unique historical account and resource for researching the Appalachian Mountain country folks and their way of life.
In 1966, in the Appalachian Mountains of Northwest Georgia, Eliot Wigginton and his students founded a quarterly magazine that they named Foxfire, after the eerie phosphorescent glow emitted by a certain lichen growing on decaying logs found in the forest. In 1972, several articles from the magazine were published in book form, and the acclaimed Foxfire series was born. More than thirty years later, in this age of technology and cyber-living, the books teach a philosophy of simplicity in living that is truly enduring in its appeal. This series has sold over six million copies, a testimony to this series popularity.
These books are a written recording of a series of interviews conducted over several years with the rural mountain country people of the Great Smoky Mountains. The people interviewed were skilled in a specific handicraft, a particular skill, or had specific knowledge of mountain folk living, traditions, and customs. These books record these interviews with text and black and white photographs and illustrations.
Much more than "how-to" books, the Foxfire series is a publishing phenomenon teaching creative self-sufficiency, a rural way of life, the art of natural remedies, home crafts and skills and other country folkways, and is fascinating to everyone interested in rediscovering the virtues of a simpler life. These books were not meant to be only a series of specific how-to-do books, rather they are a recording of country living methods and skills gathered and used over the years by the Appalachian mountain folks, and how these skills and methods were used by the people at the time. Each book records and teaches creative self-sufficiency, the art of natural remedies, home crafts, and other mountain country folkways. In fact, the style of living and many of the skills and ideas recorded are still being used today.
The popularity of the Foxfire series on oral history of Appalachian lives and traditions, homespun crafts, and folk arts have become a phenomenon that spread far beyond Georgia.
