Canadian sayings 2: 1,000 folk sayings used by Canadians
At last! Folk sayings are passed around by word of mouth in a small community where life and work are shared and Casselman has collected 1,000 absolute beauties in this all new, all Canadian collection. As with the first volume, which was a number one bestseller and stayed on the National Post bestseller list for a total of 61 weeks (!), these delightful and sometimes pungent sayings are annotated and arranged in over 130 categories, ranging from All is Well and All is No Well through Anger, Appearance, Bad Luck, Canadiana, Clumsiness, Excuses, Fatness, Liars, Machismo, Shyness, Ugliness, and Thinking, to Water, Weakness, Wealth, and Work.No one else writes about our words like Bill Casselman does-he has been called A Bluenose among schooners on the sea of popular etymology.
