These last are most vividly expressed in The Jamesons, sketches of village life published here for the first time since the turn of the century. Other stories center on questions of women's integrity, courage, and, often, privation; explore cultural constructions of masculinity; and dramatize the interconnection of rural New England with modern culture and commerce."--BOOK JACKET
