• "Backroads - Plain Folk and Simple Livin'" vol 1 by Lynn Coffey

Plain Folk & Simple Livin' is the first in a series of Appalachian culture books by Lynn Coffey.  Backroads is a 9x6 inch trade paperback, 267 pages with 132 black and white photographs that highlight the native people of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.  The thirty-one chapters include subjects ranging from beekeeping, churning butter, early burial practices, digging ginseng, old-time recipes, butchering, chair caning, logging, as well as many in depth interviews with the native people.  Reminiscent of the well-known Foxfire series, the Backroads books continue to be relevant in today's world, not only as an Appalachian history but as a guideline for those longing for a simpler way of life.
