The Gospels in Black Country Dialect

The Black Country Society of England defines "Black Country" as "that area of South Staffordshire and North Worcestershire (excluding Birmingham) which was on the famous 30 foot seam of coal." I couldn't find an original web site for this, but a UK store has it available here. A sample of the Gospels is "Wile the shepuds wus waatchin' oover thayer flocks..a brite lite shon all rahnd 'em. It day 'arf put the wind up 'em"
