Free Men

Free Men: A Novel - Katy Simpson Smith

Free Men by Katy Simpson Smith is about a manhunt in 1788 in Alabama for the unlikely combination of a white man, a runaway slave, and an American Indian. This book is a character study of the three criminals and the man chasing them. Socially, economically, and legally, these men couldn't be any more different, but their stories have dramatic similarities. Underlying the entire book is the the question of what form freedom make take. It will leave you thinking.
