Enjoyed it

Yes, I do see that there's a warning saying that this was "published" from a public domain copy found in a library, but it's kind of ridiculous to use a copy where so many of the pages are scribbled on or underlined, where the author's name on the title page is defaced, and some anonymous library reader scrawled "BALONEY!" at the end of the first story. Very disappointed in this purchase.
happy light
Jewett's short vignettes were dismissed in her lifetime as "mere sketches" of regional life. If you want fast-moving action based plots, these aren't your thing. But the short, loosely interconnected pieces in this collection are wonderful images of a time, place and lifestyle. The domestic world of 19th century women, as well as New England, are painted with a light brush. People interested in early environmentalism/naturalism will find "A White Heron" a depiction of a growing awareness of humanity/nature's interconnectedness.
You may have to read this for a high school or college English course, and if so, read it with the expectation of snapshots of American life that reveal a lot about the author's life, too.
