Description Information

In her new book On the Way to Toe Town: Learning, Curiosity, Rebellion, and Play in Traditional Appalachian Childhood, Shifflett dwells on the informal education of Appalachian children - how they learned in the family, how adults reponded to their curious questions, and how they rebelled. Shifflett includes a description of games and toys handed down over the generations.  As usual her work is interspersed with personal stories and reflections on her own childhood.
