The Country of the Pointed Firs

The Country of the Pointed Firs
Jewett, Sarah Orne

A classic of American fiction, memorializing the traditions, manners and dialect of Maine coast natives at the turn of the 20th century. In luminous evocations of their lives, Maine-born Jewett created startlingly real portraits of individual New Englanders, and a warm, humorous and compassionate vision of New England character.


A writer seeks the quiet of a small town but instead becomes drawn into the stories of its inhabitants.
