Remarking that the love of weather seems to have passed with the old time farming and its lore to boot, Eric Sloane has collected a group of American weather sayings. The main part of this little packet consists of a folklore dictionary, with sayings ticked off as True, False or Possible -- with an iota of comment per item. Samples; ""When cattle lie down as they are put to pasture, rain is on its way"" (F), ""A cow with its tail to the West, makes weather the best;/A cow with its tail to the East, makes weather the least"" (T), ""Fog in the morning, sailor take warning;/Fog in the night, sailor's delight""(P). Genuine weather-watchers may rise to uphold their favorite sayings and may also want more complete sky-scanning. Country conversation-piece.
