These proverbs have been collected and carefully edited to reflect the language spoken in Scotland at the turn of the century. The tone, lifestyle, and spirit of the Scottish nation years ago resonates in the colloquial nature of the proverbs. Through opinions on love, drinking, work, money, law, and politics, the sharp wit and critical eye of the Scottish spirit is strikingly conveyed in this collection. Glasgow artist Shona Grant, illustrates the collection with 30 clever drawings.
