In print for over fifty years, One Mans Meat continues to delight readers with E. B. White's witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm. Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny and self-doubting for a literary journal, One Mans Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman's lessons and a timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style.
