A charming, attractively illustrated collection of country sayings with their origins and meanings. Country sayings are deeply rooted in our everyday language. Dip inside and you'll find the origins of many familiar proverbs and time-honoured phases associated with the weather and the passage of the seasons, farming, animals and livestock, and the superstitions that once underscored so much of country life. Widely used as many of the sayings may be, their origins and early meanings still hold surprises for the modern reader and cast a fascinating and revealing light on the lives of our rural forebears.
