Product Description

Review

this latest book indulges our obsession with the weather, as well as imparting some clever and long-forgotten folklore. --unknown author

It is extremely good value, and can be strongly recommended to readers of this Journal, either to give away as a birthday present, or to keep and enjoy themselves. --Peter Rodgers, The International Journal of Meteorology

It makes for entertaining reading, not least for the amount of trivia that she manages to incorporate in her explanations of some of the more elaborate meterological forecasting methods. --Shooting Times & Country Magazine

Product Description

An enthralling book that not only satisfies our fascination for lost wisdom of our ancestors but also indulges the British obsession with the weather. Probably the best known country saying of them all is 'red sky at night, shepherd's delight'. Wise Words and Country Ways Weather Lore presents us with dozens more similar, but largely now forgotten, words of wisdom that are imbued with a centuries-old understanding of the patterns of British weather, seasonal changes and the behavior of plants and animals around us. It has highly relevant content for an age where we all feel we have lost touch with the patterns of nature.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a really interesting read, the kind of book you can dip in and out of. Open it at any page and you are bound to find something amusing and entertaining. I bought it as a present for my brother-in-law who loved it. It is really attractive and well put together and is very good value for money.
