Summary, etc.: The Egg and I took first America by storm in 1945, selling over 1,000,000 within ten months of it's original publication. Betty MacDonald's first book about her adventures as a young wife on a chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state was a breath of fresh air to a world that, in the wake of WWII, sorely needed it. Betty lived with her first husband near Chimacum, Washington-a newlywed doing her best to adjust to and help operate their small chicken farm, from 1927 to 1931. MacDonald was a keen observer of the people around her, and she calls a spade a spade, "and there were a plenty of spades." The Egg and I was adapted for stage, radio and screen, with the movie version starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray.
