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, com-post, taxes, war, winter, and much more will resonate just as strongly today--to anyone attuned to Maine life--as they did more than half a century ago.… (mere)

After White (mostly) left The New Yorker magazine in the late 1930s, he took up writing a column for Harper's (the column shares the name with this book), and farmed on the side. Or, judging from this book, he took up farming and wrote on the side. White occasionally, and ruefully, admits he's not quite sure which is which. Generally low-key and pleasant observations of rural Maine in the late 1930s and early 1940s. This particular edition came out in the middle of the war, and includes a number of chapters written after the outbreak of the war. ( )

Excellent collection of essays, primarily in Harpers and a couple or three from The New Yorker, from the immediate pre-war and early WW2 era (July 1938 through January 1942). White's life as a salt water farmer – actually and more precisely, as a "gentleman farmer" – in Maine, but with substantial digressions to nearly everything under the sun, including White's "world federalism" and his sometimes conflicting thoughts on the New Deal.

Here is a collection of essays written from [[E.B. White]]'s saltwater farm in Maine from 1938 to 1943. I love these seemingly meandering thoughts, so perfectly written that not a word is out of place. Full of gentle humor, introspective thoughts about the war and the future of mankind and nations, and farm anecdotes, it is like visiting with a favorite uncle. This will always have a place on my shelves. ( )

Funny, insightful, and still relevant today--this is an excellent collection of essays. ( )
