Free Air anticipates many of the themes of Lewis' later novels and John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley. Claire blazing her own trail West personifies the nineteenth-century pioneer woman and looks ahead to the independent minded 20th century woman like the heroines played by Katherine Hepburn.
"An American story in every page....Amusing, interesting, alive to its final period." (The New York Times)
"Lewis really seems to catch the sweep and exhilaration of the great open country over which his characters wind their way." (New Republic)
One of those tales that makes you admire how far women's lib has come in 100 years.
Chapters not individually bookmarked, but rather grouped, which is rather annoying.
