First published in 1942, One Man’s Meat has been in print almost without interruption. Now these classic essays on Maine life have come home to roost with a Maine publisher.
E. B. White began this collection as a series of pieces for Harper’s when he left New York City and moved to a saltwater farm in Brooklin, Maine. His observations on town meetings, poultry, the weather, songbirds, compost, taxes, war, winter, and much more will resonate just as strongly today as they did half a century ago.
