If you have a drop of Scottish blood, ever been to Scotland or have an ounce of curiosity about the many unusual sayings in Scotland, this is the book for you. From Colin S.K. Walker, Scottish Proverbs showcases the sharp insights and humor in these time-honored pearls of wisdom. You will enjoy learning the proverbs, or wee sayings that persist to this day. As Shakespeare said, "Brevity is the soul of wit," and these concise bits of folk culture showcase both the musicality of and humorous intelligence of the Scottish people. Perfect reading for short spells as it is broken into easy to read sections. Family life, commerce, honesty, work, wealth, friendship, and romance are all touched upon in these verbal gems. The layout and design is akin to the popular Scottish Customs book that we sold out of promptly upon its being included in our catalog and which remains a best seller. 160 page paperback.
