Sarah Orne Jewett was born in 1849 to a well to do New England family Her family split their time in Boston while summering in south Bostwick Maine Jewett exhibited that she wanted to be a writer early on and after striking up a friendship with editor William Dean Howells her stories began to appear in the Atlantic Her most famous collection of stories which can also be known as a novella and has gained inclusion in 500 Great Books By Women by Erica Bauermeister is The Country of the Pointed Firs detailing a summer that Jewett spent in fictional Dunnett s Landing Maine Although the narrator is not Jewett by name the story details time she enjoyed in a similar setting Willa Cather calls The Country of Pointed Firs one of the top three American books that she read and Cather even edited a later edition of the book Dunnett s Landing and her inhabitants even without Cather s editing skills are worthy of their place as uality women s literature The uaint village of Dunnett s Landing is a lovely way to pass a summer afternoon A narrator who may or may not be Jewett has chosen to pass her summer as a lodger at the home of Almira Todd a sixty seven year old widow Todd chose never to remarry and is by definition a strong female protagonist She is a medicine woman and knows everything about all the flora and fauna in the area assisting the town doctor in most cases She is also related to most people in the are as her mother s people the Bowdens have called northern Maine home for five generations preceding the revolution Through Mrs Todd we hear many yarns of oral history Whether it is a story about sailing or whaling foraging for plant life or the many relatives Mrs Todd has in the area we see that she is both a walking history book and charming older woman who our narrator is happy to call a friend As there are few books featuring strong older female characters I was easily enad with Mrs Todd s characterAlmira Todd is hardly the only dynamic woman featured in this novella Todd s close friend Susan Bostwick is the only survivor out of nine siblings Bostwick comes from a sea faring family that spent as much time at sea as on land and she and Todd have known each other since they began school Together they regale the narrator with wonderful stories and it is apparent that they enjoy an enriching friendship Yet no woman in this novella charmed me as much as Todd s mother eighty six year old Mrs Blackett An independent woman if there ever was one Mrs Blackett has chosen to live in a cottage on Green Island with her confirmed bachelor son William Content with her station in life Mrs Blackett shows the exuberance of youth and hardly seems older than her daughter Mrs Todd The two women appear as siblings rather than a mother and daughter giving credence to the adage that age is but a number In the case of Mrs Blackett it appears as though her best days could still be ahead of herIn addition the strong female protagonists I fell in love with Dunnett s Landing Maine I spent many vacations in Door County Wisconsin and the heavy foliage along with lakeside air and diet heavy on fish boils and cherry pie are similar in character to Dunnett s Landing The villages are based on fishing and summer homes and the fir and other trees create a setting that evokes late nights on a porch reminiscing about time gone by Jewett enjoyed uality female friendships and got the idea for Dunnett s Landing after spending a month with a friend in a Maine seaside village Even though she wintered in the Boston area Maine held a special place for Jewett as she revisited the characters and setting in later stories Some editions of the book include these stories including a short story entitled William s Wedding In all of the yarns the sea is calm the foliage is luscious and Jewett s character descriptions are as though the reader has been acuainted with them for their entire livesThe Country of Pointed Firs is a uality way to spend a summer afternoon It evokes time spent on vacation in the country with dear family and friends Because Jewett s writing is full of strong female characters it can also be considered early feminist literature Yet this writing contains no conflict as not one character can be considered an antagonist Perhaps this can also be true of Jewett s life full of female friendship and little hardship until she fell ill right before her passing As such I would be interested in reading Jewett s other stories especially her previous work appearing in the Atlantic The Country of Pointed Firs has been a
