This essay locates Sarah Orne Jewett's The Country of the Pointed Firs in relation to contemporaneous sociological discourse decrying New England's diminished birthrate as a harbinger of national decline. Jewett's pairing of nativist nostalgia with a progressive vision of women's independence illuminates the conflicting demands of white nationalism and feminism in Roosevelt's America.
