The story of an endearing, unlikely friendship set against the backdrop of a remote and beautiful Maine coastal town, The Country of the Pointed Firs is one of Sarah Orne Jewett's most loved works, and it quickly earned her a reputation as a talented writer upon its publication. Praised by Alice Brown for its "idyllic atmosphere of country life," Jewett's moving novel shows her intimate understanding of New England and its unique inhabitants, whose prickly exteriors often concealed a warm and loyal nature.
This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes four additional Dunnet Landing stories: "The Queen's Twin," "A Dunnet Shepherdess," "The Foreigner," and "William's Wedding."
