"Anyone who has ever struggled with a farm or even with a small garden will especially enjoy this breezy
autobiography, But everyone will find its hilarious reminiscences of an unconventional childhood and of unique
experiences in the Northwest Pacific sprightly, diverting, and excellent entertainment. The whole book crackles with the
innocent deviltry of acorns hitting the roof-tops." -- "Saturday Review of Literature""For all the allegedly gloomy
moments, The Egg and l is an astoundingly light-hearted book. The MacDonalds, one gathers, had both youth and gumption
on their side, to say nothing of an abounding humor that bounced them over the direst crises." "-- New York Times"
