Singin’, Praisin’, Raisin’


The Foxfire 45th Anniversary Book: Singin’, Praisin’, Raisin’ celebrates 45 years of local students collecting and preserving the heritage of Southern Appalachia. The book’s first song-themed section, “A Beautiful Life,” features thoughtful and touching stories from new, colorful regional personalities. “Knoxville Girl” and “Barbara Allen” relate intriguing tales and legends of relatively-rare notable crimes and various spooky happenings. “Echoes” contains encouraging life stories about gospel, bluegrass, and faith from several traditional musicians. “Daddy Was a Farmer” relives the days of Rabun Gap–Nacoochee School’s storied Farm Family Program through the memories of those who acquired both sustenance and education while working the land around the school. “With His Own Two Hands” closes the book with a selection of how-to articles ranging from building a versatile farming sled to constructing basic woodworking tools and braiding a leather bullwhip.
