Read full description of the books Snowball Oranges: One Mallorcan Winter:
How a Scotsman and his family lived the dream, making their vacation home permanentand how the local neighbors helped them endure that "dream" I could hardly believe my eyes. A cold mantle of white was rapidly transforming our sunny paradise into a bizarre winterscape of citrus Christmas trees, cotton wool palms and snowball oranges. When the Kerr family leaves Scotland to grow oranges in a secluded valley on the island of Mallorca they are surprised to be greeted by the same freezing weather they left behind. They realize that their new orange farm is a bit of a lemon. Laughter, finds Peter Kerr, is the best medicine when faced with a local dish of rats and the live-chicken-down-a-chimney technique of household maintenance. But their Mallorcan neighbors help them adapt to their new life in this hilarious and revealing memoir, full of life and color, set against the breathtaking beauty of the Mediterranean.
