Free Air By Sinclair Lewis
eBook (ePub): $1.49
This cheerful little road novel, published in 1919, is about Claire Boltwood, who, in the early days of the 20th century, travels by automobile from New York City to the Pacific Northwest, where she... More > falls in love with a nice, down-to-earth young man and gives up her snobbish Estate. From a critical perspective, Free Air is consistent with Sinclair Lewis's lean towards egalitarian politics, which he displays in his other works (most notably in It Can't Happen Here). Examples of his politics in Free Air are found in Lewis's emphasis on the heroic role played by the book's protagonist, Milt Dagget, a working class everyman type. Conversely, Lewis presents nearly every upper-class character in Claire Boltwood's world (including her railroad-mogul father) as being snobby elitists. The story also champions the democratic nature of the automobile, versus the more aristocratic railroad travel.< Less

More > so many of you told me how much you liked the other airship story, “The Motor Boys in the Clouds.” Airships are now getting to be a regular feature of our daily life, and, while not yet as numerous as automobiles, it is only a question of time when they will be. You remember, I suppose, when automobiles were not very numerous, but there is not a city in this country to-day, where several can not be seen. Following their first experiences in the wonderful motor ship they had constructed, our three friends, Jerry, Bob and Ned, were ready for more adventures. By a combination of circumstances they learned of a party of white men who were held captive by a strange tribe of Indians in a valley of the Rocky Mountains. They decided to rescue them, and they did not succeed without considerable peril.< Less

Second, Big Oil is driving vital national decisions, which is wrong, and should stop.
