continuing our week of favorite books today with books on living in the country...
of course, foxfire books are a goldmine of old country ways and wisdom...everything from cooking to cures, and hogs to homes...filled with interviews with old appalachian people living on the land. this book on alex stewart is also a goldmine, but fewer people have heard of it. it's from years of interviews by a college lad, and has so many facts and ways of living you can hardly imagine today. fascinating, and i was so sad when it when it was over!
lovely photographs by gordon parks that document segregation and southern history.
rinne and i picked the same book....for different days. this book holds photographs by william christenberry that capture the beauty of the south. everytime i page through this book i am reminded of the landscape that i fell in love with. several years ago i read an interview with him and he said something so perfectly, "i find beauty in what's old and changing, like we are all changing".
deeply moving images of the southern landscape.
inspiration from the countryside.
things to forage for in the countryside.
thank you for reading!
