This was a fun book to read. The main thing I learned from this book was that the Ozark people set quite a store by urine as a cure-all for most everything. It was fun seeing how many superstitions cross cultural lines (salt over the shoulder, seeing two crows= good luck, horseshoes turned the correct way over a door frame to bring fortune to a home, eating greens and peas on New Year's Day, etc.)
