In this video Bill Hart describes highlights from the seventh bookshelf in his personal library, where he discusses books dealing with folklore and mountain humor.
Hart discusses books and stories by Bob Terrell, Herbert Hyde, Ray Hicks, Billy Ed Wheeler and Loyal Jones. He also discusses books on mountain crafts, the crafts movement, Cherokee crafts, basket making, pottery, the Southern Highland Craft Guild, and the Foxfire books.
This video was filmed in the Hart’s personal library prior to donating the collection to UNC Asheville’s Special Collections. The books in the Bill and Alice Hart Collection are shelved in the same order as in the Hart’s marvelous personal library.
