Faith, Family, and The Land


For four decades, Foxfire books have brought the philosophy of simple living to readers, teaching creative self-sufficiency and preserving the stories and customs of Appalachia. Built around three basic values of Southern Appalachian life, Faith, Family, and the Land continues the Foxfire tradition, but in a unique way. Reminiscences of church, faith healing, and miracles; raisin’, farming, and holidays; buying land, logging, and the mountains – elders’ thoughts on these topics and “how things used to be” are related through direct quotes from the hundreds and hundreds of Foxfire contacts who have graciously shared their lives with Foxfire Magazine students since 1966. Filled with memories, lessons, advice, and even recipes, The Foxfire 40th Anniversary Book is a tribute to four decades of Foxfire – to the contacts who shared their lives with the students who gathered the stories to pass on to the readers across the country and around the world – kindred spirits who treasure the simple, steadfast, and unique culture of Southern Appalachia.
