In the eleventh volume of Foxfire, teachers, students, and other Appalachian community members continue to spread their stories to remind people that simple living still exists.  This book includes many articles that teach us creative ways to become self-sufficient, make natural homemade remedies, take part in home crafts, and cook delicious, southern meals.  Anyone interested in rediscovering the advantages of living a simple life will enjoy this read!
