Eggs in the Coffee, Sheep in the Corn: My 17 Years as a Farmwife

$ 15.95


The world turned upside down for city-bred Marjorie Douglas when, in 1943, her young husband moved her and their baby, Anne, from suburban St. Paul to a western Minnesota stock ranch to help his parents stave off financial disaster. With wit and wisdom Douglas's memoir describes a Midwestern way of life of 50 years ago.

"What makes this book particularly worth reading, and refreshing, is its outlook. This is a relentlessly honest account of farm life."--Annals of Iowa
