A combination of folklore and time-honored advice, this book illuminates the history behind women's wisdom from yesteryear. Tried and tested tips to cure ailments such as warts, arthritis, and gout are interspersed with ancient old wives' tales regarding the questionable practice of warding off the plague by shaving a live chicken and tying it to your groin. Taking in money-saving ideas, gardening knowledge, household management, and age-old remedies, the book demonstrates that while some tales fall under the heading of "do not attempt this at home," a great deal of this ancient lore remains relevant today.
