This superlative work by Sarah Orne Jewett, a late 19th century writer, shows great literary skill, artistry and charm. The Country of the Pointed Firs depicts the close personal and family relationships in a small New England village. In its appreciation of the natural beauty and restorative powers of a small community, it is similar to Thoreau's Walden.
"Unexpected Delight !"
With humor and compassion we enter the world of a small seacoast village located in northern Maine, where courage and caring are beautifully exemplified.
