Headin’ for the Rhubarb! A New Hampshire Dictionary (well, kinda) will set you straight on the correct meaning of New Hampshire’s native expressions and how to pronounce them. Yup, you’ll be talking N’ampshah fore you know it.
Live Free and Eat Pie: A Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire gives you an inside look at the Granite State as only a native sees it!
Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story. — Rule’s Rules
