Review

"In this centenary year of the author's death Broadview Press is to be commended for bringing forth an excellent new edition of Sarah Orne Jewett's great work, The Country of the Pointed Firs. Considered by Willa Cather one of the American books guaranteed to endure, the text is here reproduced in its original integrity, after which are appended the sequel Dunnet Landing stories. Deborah Carlin's exceptionally informative annotations to the text will greatly enrich readers' appreciation and understanding. Also supplied is a useful selection of supplementary critical and historical material, including a rare, little-known, and very valuable 1895 interview with Jewett. The Country of the Pointed Firs is a distinguished addition to the impressive Broadview Editions series; I highly recommend it for classroom use, as well as for the general reader."--Josephine Donovan
