When 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.

I would run through the streets saying it over and over. My tongue would be torn loose - it would rattle against my teeth. The three men are in a room in the house. One is young and dandified. He continually laughs. There is a second man who has a long white beard. He is consumed with doubt but occasionally his doubt leaves him and he sleeps.

The Egg & The Family

IVF – The Early Years

Author: Steve Green

Publisher: Book Guild Publishing

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: N.A

View: 587

This short memoir mixes science with human interest. It charts the author’s journey working at the forefront of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), test tube baby research. It recounts the challenges that went into establishing IVF in the wake of Steptoe and Edwards and provides a cautionary tale of how necessary it is to pay attention to what’s going on in your own family. There are no other published books that detail the development of IVF in the UK from the perspective of someone who was at the cutting edge, but it is told from a very human and personal view point to appeal to a wide variety of readers. The author started as a homeless teenager from Grimsby and later became one of the founding fathers of IVF. Throughout the 1980s and 90s and for years after that, he played a key part in its scientific progress. The dedication to bring children into the lives of thousands of infertile families, came at a cost of losing his own family. Dr Steve Green PhD is a Clinical Embryologist and is regarded today as one of the founding fathers of Modern Embryology. In 1981 he began working on the techniques that would become routine in treating infertility and was the embryologist responsible for the first test tube baby (IVF) twins and triplets in the UK in 1982 and 1984 respectively. His work on simultaneous sperm and egg transfer directly into the uterus with the team at the Royal Free Hospital in London, resulted in the first babies in the world to be born from this pioneering technique in 1982. The work has since been referred to many times as a significant milestone in IVF history and paved the way for alternative thinking. In 1995 while at the nurture unit, Dr Green was part of the team that achieved the first pregnancy in the world after treating a couple with ICSI using the immature sperm. Dr Green now lives in County Antrim, Northern Ireland and has published over 50 academic papers and is still very active in the field where his interests are focussed on egg vitrification; a special technique of freezing and time-lapse imaging of embryo development.

The Egg, the Plague, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, and I

Betty Bard MacDonald (1907�1958), the best-selling author of The Egg and I and the classic Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle children�s books, burst onto the literary scene shortly after the end of World War II. Readers embraced her memoir of her years as a young bride operating a chicken ranch on Washington�s Olympic Peninsula, and The Egg and I sold its first million copies in less than a year. The public was drawn to MacDonald�s vivacity, her offbeat humor, and her irreverent take on life. In 1947, the book was made into a movie starring Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert, and spawned a series of films featuring MacDonald's Ma and Pa Kettle characters. MacDonald followed up the success of The Egg and I with the creation of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, a magical woman who cures children of their bad habits, and with three additional memoirs: The Plague and I (chronicling her time in a tuberculosis sanitarium just outside Seattle), Anybody Can Do Anything (recounting her madcap attempts to find work during the Great Depression), and Onions in the Stew (about her life raising two teenage daughters on Vashon Island). Author Paula Becker was granted full access to Betty MacDonald�s archives, including materials never before seen by any researcher. Looking for Betty MacDonald, a biography of this endearing Northwest storyteller, reveals the story behind the memoirs and the difference between the real Betty MacDonald and her literary persona.
