About this product
- DescriptionAmericans are practical people, and they have a gift for coining pithy phrases. Much of the wit and wisdom commonly attributed to other cultures has, in fact, had its origin in America -- in the cornfields, coal mines, timberlands, and on the reservations and city streets of yesteryear. This collection of over 150 proverbs captures the colourful and diversified ways Americans uniquely express their views of life. All proverbs are arranged by topic: Body and Mind, Friendship and Family, Men and Women, Money, The Spirit, African American Proverbs, Native American Proverbs, and Selected Proverbs by State. Twenty-five exquisite illustrations bring this collection to life.
