All of Jewett's best fiction, including her three novels, "Deephaven," "A Country Doctor," and "The Country of the Pointed Firs," and 28 funny, satirical, and poignant sketches and stories. Set against long Maine winters, hardscrabble farms, and the sea, Jewett's stories of gruff, capable farmers and seafolk--and of the rewards and trials of family and communal ties--have a very modern resonance. This comprehensive collection reveals the full stature of the unjustly neglected writer Willa Cather ranked with Mark Twain and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
