I have been rereading many of the Foxfire books, but I had never realized that they had published this wonderful book until my husband gave me a copy for Christmas. Aunt Arie is an elderly woman that the Foxfire students had interviewed and befriended back in the 1970's. Her interview became part of one of the Foxfire Series books.
Well, they received so many letters around the world asking about Aunt Arie and wanting to know more about her that Foxfire decided to publish a book with the transcripts of their interviews with her and some of their experiences while visiting her.
Aunt Arie was a heart warming character. You will laugh at her humor and seethe when you hear how antique collectors stole from this lone old woman. She has long passed from this world, but we can still learn from her story.
