The Talk of Islanders: 1975-2005

Product Description

Author, storyteller and folk historian David Weale sometimes refers to himself as a “speech-comber.” For more than thirty years he has been gathering up the voices of Islanders as one means of documenting the way of life that existed on Prince Edward Island before and after, the rapid modernization of the mid-Twentieth Century. With a fine ear for well-turned, vernacular phrases, pithy folk wisdom and the wit and sardonic humour of the Island, Weale has assembled here a collection of more than 1300 quotes, all collected during the period 1975-2005. Together they form a massive oral mosaic of Island culture that will definitely make you laugh, perhaps make you sad, certainly make you ponder, and sometimes make you shake your head in disbelief.
