One of the first road trip novels, Free Air is the story of Claire Boltwood, a young heiress who, in the early days of the automobile, takes a road trip from New York to the Pacific coast. Liberating in all senses, Claire’s road trip frees her from the strict confines of aristocratic life, as she finds love and settles into a new life far removed from her entitled upbringing.
