The Firefox books contain solid practical advice and rural skills. They are an interesting read of how things were done years ago in the Appalachians.

Volume 7 contains information on ministers, church members, revivals, baptisms, shaped-note, and gospel singing, faith healing, camp meetings, foot-washing, snake handling, and other traditions of mountain religious heritage.

Volume 8 contains information on southern folk pottery from pug mills, ash glazes, and groundhog kilns to face jugs, churns, and roosters, mule swapping, and chicken fighting.

Volume 9 contains information on general stores, the Jud Nelson wagon, a praying rock, a Catawhun Indian potter and haint tales, quilting, home cures, and the log cabin revisited.
