This book is a wonderful treasure trove of old country ways, lore, recipes and practical tips. Whether you are in town or country this book is a marvellous reference book to find those obscure little bits of information, for instance, I have always been unsure about which way up to hang a horseshoe. I'm looking forward to trying the fruit cake recipe and testing to see how fresh the eggs really are. This book has so much fascinating information, a broad and detailed cornucopia of knowledge, you will be poring over it for years to come. Written in a fresh, light and humorous style which will bring a smile to your face every time you pick it up. I recommend this book. A sheer delight.
