The Egg and I

Take a deep breath, grab your loved one by the hand, jump into your pickup truck and head for the wilds of Washington State, where Betty MacDonald spent a few years as an egg farmer’s wife. You’ll love Betty for her self-deprecating comments and calm acceptance of her crazy neighbors (The Kettles), you’ll envy her fresh mountain air and jaw dropping views, but you’ll snuggle deeper under your own covers when you read about her getting up at 4am to struggle with the stove, wet laundry hanging throughout the winter in the kitchen and never getting dry, cougars stalking through the woods, drunken wife-beating Injuns (Betty’s a bit of a racist), and a severe drought of books or reading material.
Fantastic peek inside life on a farm in the 1940’s. Recommended!
