It is truly sad that anyone who reads this book and does not have firsthand knowledge of the Foxfire program would accept this work as accurate. As a former Foxfire student and current PhD candidate, with extensive background in research methodology, I find Puckett's obvious Wigginton witch hunt and sloppy research of little value and educationally insulting. Much of his 'information' is simply wrong. If a reader is in search of what the Foxfire teaching methodology is about, during Wigginton and post-Wigginton eras, I strongly suggest another avenue. Puckett misrepresents his position, his research methods and pretty much all of his findings in a manner that is evident to anyone associated with Foxfire or is an educational researcher. It would be humorous, if one did not realize that the author meant to do serious research. Anyone who funded this work wasted valuable grant dollars for there is little of value in this misleading book.
