Backroads: Plain Folk & Simple Livin' (PB)
Backroads: Plain Folk & Simple Livin' (PB)

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.
