Whiffletrees and Goobers by W.R. Runyan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Did you know that a horse apple is actually a type of orange? Or that a whiffletree is not a tree at all? You will, after you pore through this delightful dictionary of old-fashioned words that are quickly slipping from America's vocabulary. With over 100 illustrations and steeped in nostalgia, it makes for a fun trip down memory lane. Wander into Americas past and play a game of Rolley Holley, buy a Tin Lizzy and make friends with some doughboys. And if you want to know where to put a snaffle or when to perform the Green Corn Stomp Dance, the answers are here. With its convenient format, this guide is great for anyone curious about what things were really like back in the day.
