Publisher's Summary

The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett, is an 1896 novella and early example of the regionalism genre with its sketches of the fictional fishing village of Dunnet Landing in Maine. The narrator is a woman from Boston who returns to the small coastal town after a brief earlier visit, in order to finish writing her book. She rents an empty schoolhouse with a panoramic view of Dunnet Landing, which serves as a focus of narrative consciousness. Composed of a series of sketches connected by a background tale of a lady spending the summer in the town, the author sensitively portrays the townspeople, their relationships and their naturally industrious natures.
