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 ninth volume of the series includes information about general stores, the Jud Nelson wagon, a  praying rock, a Catawban Indian potter, "haint" tales, quilting, home cures, and more on the log cabin.
