Publisher Comments:

Set in Dunnet Landing, Maine in a summer of the late 1800s, "The Country of the Pointed Firs," is the story of a female writer seeking isolation and inspiration for her writing in a small coastal New England town. Rich with the dialect of the region and the culture of the time "The Country of the Pointed Firs" is an intimate examination of the relationships amongst the members of a rural New England fishing village in the late 1800s.

Reina, February 2, 2007 (view all comments by Reina)
Jewett's book should be considered one of the great works of American literature. I read it every year and it never fails to be entertaining, soothing, and emotionally evocative, all in a very quiet way. Some consider it only as regional fiction, but it is in every way as great a work, perhaps better, than you will find on any American Lit. course list. Please read this book!
