Listening to Rural Midwestern Idioms/Folk Sayings
Entertaining guide to sayings and expressions from an almost lost early rural culture. Helps explain some strange phraseology and other Midwestern talk. These sayings are colored with allusions from the past and touched with a bit of humor. Some may appear to be crude and crass, but they are authentic. Written by noted storyteller and observer of local folks. You'll find no beating around the bush here. If you're ready to chew the fat and strike while the iron is hot, then this book's for you.
Lee Jackson says: You'll have fun learning the meaning and references in these curious expressions and folk sayings. This is an expanded and revised edition of Bob Bohlken's earlier work. Grab a copy for your grandparents' reading enjoyment. It's also helpful for those who have recently moved into rural areas and are confused by what others may be saying. Words can be interpreted in many different ways. --Lee Jackson, author of Healthy to the Core! All Natural Low Sugar/No Sugar Apple Recipes for Kids
