The Bawdy Bloody Black Country – Carol Midwood
"Young Will Taylor should never EVER have shagged Sarah Dunn..." From Bold William Taylor.

The bawdy tales include Nine Times A Night and The Buxom Dairy Maid. The bloody tales include The Wednesbury Cock Fight and The Tale of Trubshaw and Green. But they are all Black Country tales and they are all side splittingly hilarious. A must have title for all lovers of Black Country humour.
