Portada
Anchor Press, 1973 - 410 pàgines
"In 1966, in the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Georgia, a teacher and his students founded a quarterly magazine that they named Foxfire, after a phosphorescent lichen. In 1972, several articles from the magazine were published in book form and the acclaimed Foxfire series was born ... the books continue to teach a philosophy of simplicity in living that is truly enduring in its appeal. Much more than "how to" books, the Foxfire series is a publishing phenomenon and a way of life, teaching creative self-sufficiency, the art of natural remedies, home crafts, and other country folkways, fascinating to everyone interested in rediscovering the virtues of simple life"--Page 4 of cover.

We bought several Foxfire books from Overstock to read aloud when we go camping. They were at the time the best price online. Ghost stories were the favorite in this book. Llegeix la ressenya completa
