Jewett, Sarah Orne: Country By-Ways. v1. 26 Nov 2021

A collection comprised mostly of sketches. The pieces “Andrew’s Fortune,” “Good Luck,” and “Miss Becky’s Pilgrimage” are stories.

“Miss Jewett is a sprightly, comforting writer. She is familiar with cattle and clover, green lanes and brooks. She makes common places attractive and common people interesting.”
(—Daily Picayune, 27 Nov. 1881)

“It is perhaps a little forced to call Miss Jewett’s sketches a book of travel, yet the reader will find their value to lie chiefly in the skill with which the writer has applied a traveler’s art to scenes which lay within easy reach of her own home.”
(—Atlantic Monthly, Mar. 1882)
