First published in 1972, The Foxfire Book was a surprise bestseller that brought Appalachia's philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers. Whether you wanted to hunt game, bake the old-fashioned way, or learn the art of successful moonshining, The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center had a contact who could teach you how with clear, step-by-step instructions. The seventh Foxfire volume explores the traditions of mountain religious heritage--including ministers, revivals, baptisms, gospel-singing, faith healing, camp meetings, snake handling--and more.
