Foxfire Story

Called "timeless and curiously of the moment," by Garden & Gun Magazine, this paperback collection spotlights the oral traditions that have been part of Appalachian culture for centuries. Here are instances of mountain speech, proverbs and sayings, legends, folktales, anecdotes, songs, pranks, and jests, along with ghost tales and accounts of folk belief, as well as stories from half a dozen of the region's finest storytellers. Since 1972, Foxfire books have preserved and celebrated the culture of Southern Appalachia.
