I read this book twenty odd years ago, and I loved it. It brought back such fond childhood memories of my days on the farm in Belsano, PA, where a set of the signs stood soldier-like in the lower field of my grandad's farm. I heard from the grown-ups that someone paid him to put them there, and money was scarce in those days.
I was always intrigued by those signs, so when I saw the book advertised for the first time, it was a must-have for me. I cherished owning a complete set of the verses, most of which I'd never seen.
The book is well-written in that it has a lot of historical fact, loads of humor, and the story-telling holds your interest to the last page. One of those "can't put it down" types.
Somewhere in my travels, I've lost my copy and have mourned it's loss. Thanks to Internet, I will once again have my own cherished copy of "Verse by the Side of the Road."

This book tells the story behind those great and now gone Burma-Shave signs that so many of us remember seeing along the highways from the late 1920's to the early 1960's. When we were kids we read the signs but now it is fun to learn some of the events that took place "behind the scenes". Included in the back of the book are all the verses that were used and listed by years. A great gift!

Being raised in the midwest, and traveling through Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin where they seemed to be on the roadside every 20 miles, our family used to read them and then one of us would have to try to come up withour own. We came up with some good ones of our own. I recommend this book to anyone who traveled and enjoyed these pieces of Americana.

If you currently own a car built before 1965, there's a pretty good chance you remember driving past those wonderful Burma Shave signs.
How delightful those signs were as we went on Sunday drives with Mom and Dad. Here is not only the complete history of the company but also ALL of the rhymes.
