Haud Yer Wheesht!
A frequently hilarious and often wise collection of Scots sayings which our Grannies always seemed to have to hand for all manner of situations and circumstances. They cover marriage, cooking, the home, money, sex, the Kirk, the future, health, happiness, poverty, travel, death, birth and a lot more. Each saying is accompanied by a straightforward English equivalent for ease of understanding by tourists and visitors from overseas. Over 50 cartoon illustrations by Rupert Besley accompany the text.
