This book is for kids, so it has plenty of great kid-friendly recipes. The setup of the recipes is easiest to hardest, so it starts with simple things like smoothies and ends with some more difficult recipes like scones. I decided to make this book because a lot of kids' cookbooks out there have these giant steps of just words. They pack a lot information and steps in one "step," and it's really easy to get confused or mess up. Then, the only picture they usually have is this absolutely perfect end shot, which was obviously taken by a professional photographer. Kids try to make it, but then it doesn't turn out like the picture, and they get really frustrated and sad. But in this book, the steps are short, and each one has a photo showing what I'm doing and how to do it. There is an end shot on some of them, but it's not perfect because that's not what I was striving towards. I wanted it to look realistic, so I just made it and took its photo just how it was. This is a cookbook for kids, by a kid.

First published in 1972, The Foxfire Book was a surprise bestseller that brought Appalachia's philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers. Whether you wanted to hunt game, bake the old-fashioned way, or learn the art of successful moonshining, The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center had a contact who could teach you how with clear, step-by-step instructions. Today, Foxfire's mission remains the same, and The Foxfire Book of Simple Living is both a rich look back at five decades of collected wisdom, as well as an intriguing look forward at the artists and craftsman who are working to preserve the Appalachian tradition for future generations. We hear from doll and soap makers who continue to use and adapt the time-tested methods outlined in The Foxfire Book, not to mention hunters, blacksmiths, musicians, and carpenters whose respect for those who preceded them enhances their own art. We see how the mountain community has responded to the films, books, and plays that have tried (and sometimes failed) to represent them. And, above all, by listening to the voices of those who came before, we celebrate the people who have preserved the stories, crafts, and customs that define life in the Appalachian mountain region.

"The Art of Imitation", is a beginners guide to the tying of simple trout flies. A basic guide of how to tie simple and effective trout fishing flies, some of the gear you'll need, and materials you'll use. Originally this work was begun as a record of the flies I've tied, and how that was done. From that simple origin it has grown into what you see in the following pages. In the beginning of anyone's trout fishing journey, the tying of the flies is often seen to be quite a daunting thing. But it doesn't have to be that way. Some of the most effective flies I've ever used have been the simplest. So, in the following pages I've kept it is as simple and practical as I can to give any enthusiastic fly fisher, or anyone really, most of the skills they'll need to start their fly tying journey. Links to my youtube channel have also been included, which have some demonstration videos of the flies tied in this work. Or you can check us out on the blog if there's anything else you might like to know. It's written with a distinctly New Zealand flavor, but the skills and the patterns this book covers, should be universal wherever trout may feed. So, if you're looking to start tying your own trout flies, and not quite sure where to start, then this book may well be for you.
