Sarah Orne Jewett's stories have been hailed as "nearly perfect" and "A White Heron" itself was described by a reviewer as "a tiny classic." Taking place in 19th-century New England, "A White Heron" showcases Jewett's eye for regional detail and subtle symbolism, as she writes about a lonely 9-year-old girl named Sylvia. One day, while walking her cow home, Sylvia meets an exotic man searching for birds for his collection. The man offers her 10 dollars if she can find the heron's nest, forcing young Sylvia to decide between helping her new friend or saving the rare bird. Beautifully interpreted by narrator Sandra Piechocki, this special collection also includes 6 more of Jewett's best-loved tales, "Miss Tempy's Watchers," "An Autumn Holiday," "William's Wedding," "The Dulham Ladies," "The Only Rose," and "Miss Esther's Guest," all of which confirm that human nature is truly timeless.
