About this book

With the most colourful, poetic and picturesque country sayings and phrases of all the books in this bestselling series, "Wise Words and Country Ways Weather Lore" is a nostalgic delight that satisfies our fascination for the now lost wisdom of our ancestors and indulges our obsession with the weather, whilst reminding us how our generation has lost touch with the rhythms of the natural world. 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 behaviour 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.
