"In this highly entertaining and informative book, Mr. Sloane makes it evident that weather-in all its variety-has always been a favorite topic, whether in simply opening a conversation or as the subject of serious concern to one's livlihood. Skillfully separating fact from fiction, Mr. Sloan traces the origins of traditional beliefs, correcting misinformation and debunking myths. He discusses the reliability of weather predictions in old almanacs, precursors of modern long-range forecasts, as well as the beliefs in such natural weather instruments a baling cord, hemp lines, vanes, and even corns on one's toes. In the last chapter, folkloric sayings are arranged in alphabetical order and rated true, false, or possible, according to their probable validity. He has accompanied his delightful text with 35 graphic pen-and-ink drawings. "
