A combination of folklore and time-honoured advice, this book illuminates the history behind female wisdom from yesteryear. Taking in money saving ideas, gardening knowledge, household management and age-old remedies, it offers both seasoned advice and eccentric cures for a huge 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.
