While many settler sayings have not survived, there are many that we still use today, which trace their origins back to a particular trade such as blacksmithing - "strike while the iron is hot." Others came from the fashion of the time, such as "pulling the wool over someone's eyes," referring to the woolen wigs settlers used to wear. In Settler Sayings, young readers will learn how common sayings find their roots in day-to-day lives: - in the mill - at the inn - in the kitchen - on the farm - in battle - in the artisan's workroom.
