This book is a collection of tales and lore. Much of it is known, there were some bits that were new to me. I found the language piece interesting. "Happy as a clam at high tide" is an expression that we used in our house growing up.

Learning about bouncing cranberries (crane berries) to determine their ripeness was new to me. The naming of Hammonton was equally enlightening.

This is a fun and easy read, although more of a collection than a weighty reference.
