In the late 1960s, Eliot Wigginton and his students created the magazine Foxfire in an effort to record and preserve the traditional folk culture of the Southern Appalachians. This is the original book compilation of Foxfire material which introduces Aunt Arie and her contemporaries and includes log cabin building, hog dressing, snake lore, mountain crafts and food, and "other affairs of plain living."

Fast 30 Jahre nach seiner Reise 1988/89 (40.000 Meilen von Alaska bis Guatemala mit einem selbst ausgebauten Bäckerei-Lieferwagen) kommt das Buch "Das Bäckerauto" von Hartmut Roderfeld in die Buchläden. Aktuelle Reiseführer gibt es zu Hauf und morgen sind sie überholt und nicht mehr aktuell. Aber dieses Buch ist eben kein Reiseführer, sondern macht neugierig auf diese Länder, die unglaubliche Natur und die Menschen dort, damals wie heute. Es macht einfach Spaß, es zu lesen. Interessant sind auch die rund 13 Seiten Kostenbuch, auf denen man nachsehen kann, was diese Fahrt an Ausgaben und Einnahmen bedeutete - richtig spannend, wenn man die heutigen Preise gegenrechnet. Fotos runden das Buch ab. Hartmut und Barbara haben ihre Wohnung in Hamburg aufgegeben, die guten Arbeitsstellen gekündigt, sind mit einem Frachtschiff nach USA geschippert, haben einen alten Bäcker-wagen gekauft, ihn selbst zum Wohnmobil ausgebaut und sind dann zwei Jahre über 40.000 Meilen von Alaska bis Guatemala und Belize gefahren - davon erzählt dieses Buch. Das war 1988/89, zu einer Zeit, als man seine Briefe noch „postlagernd“ abholte, Handys unbekannt waren und es kein weltweites Internet gab. Man postete nicht jedem wo man gerade war, sondern schrieb noch Tagebuch in einem kleinen Heft. Über seine Kosten führte man per Hand Buch, um die Übersicht nicht zu verlieren und Reiseführer und Informationen waren aus Papier. Menschen lerne man persönlich kennen, indem man sie besuchte (Servas) und zur nächsten Werkstatt musste man sich durchfragen. Dies war eine ganz private und persönliche Reise ohne „Publikum“. Erst jetzt, wo Hartmut genug Zeit hat, schreibt er dieses Buch und, wie er sagt, alles ist wieder so präsent, als wäre es gestern gewesen. Es soll Mut machen, seine Träume zu verwirklichen. Reisen sind Erfahrungen, die einem keiner mehr wegnehmen kann.

Fanny McCoy has lived in fear and anger ever since that day in 1878 when a dispute with the Hatfields over the ownership of a few pigs set her family on a path of hatred and revenge. From that day forward, along the ragged ridges of the West Virginia-Kentucky line, the Hatfields and the McCoys have operated not withing the law but within mountain codes of their own making. In 1882, when Fanny's sister Roseanna runs off with young Johnse Hatfield, the hatred between the two clans explodes. As the killings, abductions, raids, and heartbreak escalate bitterly and senselessly, Fanny, the sole voice of reason, realizes that she is powerless to stop the fighting and must learn to rise above the petty natures of her family and neighbors to find her own way out of the hatred.

Experiential education is a philosophy and methodology for building knowledge, developing skills, and clarifying values by engaging learners in direct experience and focused reflection. To understand experiential education, what should one be reading? This sourcebook introduces philosophers, educators, and other practitioners whose work is relevant to anyone seeking answers to this question. Following brief snapshots of John Dewey and Kurt Hahn, the book is organized in four sections: Philosophers and Educational Theorists Nature Educators and Outdoor Educators Psychologists and Sociologists School and Program Founders. Each chapter focuses on an individual whose philosophy and practice exemplify a biographical and historical model for reaching a deeper understanding of experiential education. An appendix includes short biographical sketches of forty-five additional people whose contributions to experiential education deserve a closer look. This volume provides a much-needed overview and foundations for the field – for students in courses addressing experiential education, challenge education, outdoor experiential education, recreation education, and related fields; for learning theorists and curriculum specialists; for experiential educators; and for educational philosophers.
