This is the kind of book that should be in the lobby of any country business... that is, those not in the big cities... The book is filled with words of wit and is enjoyable anytime you need something to read while killing time or waiting...

I keep my copy in our bathroom... You don't need to ask me why...

If you can find a copy, buy it... you will enjoy it for many years

Kyd.

A wonderful book that friends left as a gift for us. It made me think about my family and our rural roots.
Much like a "Chicken Soup for the Rural Soul". This is a MUST READ if you live in a town where the stop light is the most exciting thing that came to town in 10 years!

This is a fun book! It would definitely appeal to anyone growing up in the country, or wishing that they had. It is chock-full of oldtime snippets of wisdom and folklore. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the old days or the quaint rural sayings that seem to apply even to everyday life today.
