The words ring true to the days when we were hewers of wood and drawers of water, and saw nothing particularly wrong with such tasks, even rating them as more honourable than such modern pursuits as enforcing laws against solitaire players who cheat. Preverves almost 700 words which over the years have helped the people of this province to understand it, themselves, and their neighbours." - from Foreward. Moderate wear. Unmarked. Binding sound.
