"A work of real comic genius. . . . A wonderful, funny, warm, honest book, and, to use a much overused word, a classic." -Michael Korda, author of Country MattersWhen Betty MacDonald married a marine and moved to a small chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, she was largely unprepared for the rigors of life in the wild. With no running water, no electricity, a house in need of constant repair, and days that ran from four in the morning to nine at night, the MacDonalds had barely a moment to put their feet up and relax. And then came the children. Yet through every trial and pitfall--through chaos and catastrophe--this indomitable family somehow, mercifully, never lost its sense of humor. A beloved literary treasure for more than half a century, Betty MacDonald's The Egg and I is a heartwarming and uproarious account of adventure and survival on an American frontier.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Betty MacDonaldPublisher: Harper PerennialPublished: 06/24/2008ISBN: 9780060914288Pages: 288Weight: 0.60lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.20w x 1.00d
