About this item

A combination of folklore and traditional advice, Old Wives' Lore illuminates the history behind female wisdom from yesteryear and includes a brief history of old wives’ lore, remedies for health and well-being, practical guidance for home and garden, tips on predicting the weather, and eccentric cures for a range of problems. Revealing that a great deal of old wives' lore does have its practical merits, but also how a lot of tales are not to be relied upon, this fascinating compendium of tips and tricks shows how sometimes old advice is still the best.
