The Foxfire books hold onto vanishing ways of life when everything was handmade. They are fun to read and the pictures painted of the people are fascinating. My Grandms'a family homesteaded in South Dakota. Reading about the way these people lived gives me a whole new respect for the pioneers way of life.
