New in paperback This captivating book of recollections celebrates the holiday traditions of Appalachian families as passed from one generation to the next. Based on Foxfire students' interviews with neighbors and family members, the memories shared here are from a simpler time, when gifts were fewer but perhaps more precious, and holiday tables were laden with traditional favorites. More than just reminiscences, however, A Foxfire Christmas includes instructions for recreating many of the ornaments, toys, and recipes that make up so many family traditions, from Chicken and Dumplings to Black Walnut Cake, and from candy pulls to corn husk dolls and hand-whittled toy cars.

Mo Gawdat befasst sich schon seit Jahren mit dem Thema Glück und was dieses ausmacht. Als Entwickler und Leiter in Googles Denkfabrik, Google[X], geht er das Problem eben wie ein solcher an: Er prüft alle prüfbaren Fakten und sucht die Logik dahinter. Nach unzähligen Stunden, Büchern und Interviews konnte er tatsächlich eine Gleichung für dauerhaftes Glücklichsein aufstellen. 13 Jahre später kam der härteste Test für Gawdats Glücksalgorithmus – sein Sohn starb völlig unerwartet mit 21 Jahren. Doch die Gleichung ging auf und verhinderte, dass er und seine Familie in völlige Verzweiflung abglitten. Nach der weitestmöglichen Verarbeitung dieses Verlustes fand Mo Gawdat seine Mission: die Verbreitung der Formel, die ihm geholfen hat, sein Leid zu überwinden. Seine Formel hilft heute jedem, wieder klarer zu sehen, die richtigen Prioritäten zu setzen und so zufriedener in die Zukunft zu starten – ob privat oder im Beruf. Die Formel für Glück beantwortet somit eine der häufigsten Fragen: Was kann ich tun, um glücklicher zu werden?

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. Today, Foxfire's mission remains the same, and The Foxfire Book of Simple Living is both a rich look back at five decades of collected wisdom, as well as an intriguing look forward at the artists and craftsman who are working to preserve the Appalachian tradition for future generations. We hear from doll and soap makers who continue to use and adapt the time-tested methods outlined in The Foxfire Book, not to mention hunters, blacksmiths, musicians, and carpenters whose respect for those who preceded them enhances their own art. We see how the mountain community has responded to the films, books, and plays that have tried (and sometimes failed) to represent them. And, above all, by listening to the voices of those who came before, we celebrate the people who have preserved the stories, crafts, and customs that define life in the Appalachian mountain region.

"This collection of essays by Foxfire practitioners represents the wide range of adaptations by educators of the pedagogical orientation of the Foxfire Magazine and Foxfire Programs for Teachers. Former students in the magazine class at Rabun County High School share the continuing impact of that experience on their lives, including a former student who is pioneering the magazine project with her sixth grade class. An early childhood teacher make a passionate, articulate case for instruction guided by the Foxfire Core Practices. And a former school administrator shares his experiences as guidance to current school administrators in enabling then supporting teachers to implement instruction guided by Foxfire’s Core Practices. Participants in Foxfire’s Program for Teachers, from early childhood teachers to college professors, describe their adaptations of the Foxfire Approach for instruction at all grade levels, all subjects and all demographics – including how they coped with the challenges they faced. One practitioner describes how she used the Core Practices to design instruction in rural China. We have an engaging essay focused on our summer courses for teachers, based on extensive observations and interview of participants attending those courses. Several essays explore the pedagogical roots of the Foxfire Approach, as well as its value in providing instruction today which engages the students in the content and results in durable learning. Readers can read straight through the book, beginning with a short historical introductory essay, or skip around to topics of interest to assemble an informed assessment of the potential of the Foxfire Approach."
