Hardcover (no d.j.)
Judith Reitman (ed); Barbara Smolover (il). Americans are a practical people, & they have a gift for coining pithy phrases, such as “Hitch your wagon to a star.” Much of the wit & wisdom commonly attributed to other cultures has, in fact, had its origin in America -- in the cornfields, coal mines, timberlands, & on the reservations & city streets of yesteryear. This collection of over 150 proverbs captures the colorful & diversified ways Americans uniquely express their views of life. All proverbs are arranged by topic: Body & Mind, Friendship & Family, Men & Women, Money, The Spirit, African American Proverbs, Native American Proverbs, & Selected Proverbs by State. Twenty-five exquisite illustrations bring this collection to life.
