Bohemians West: A Story Of Political And Personal Freedom

Charles Erskine Scott Wood (we’ll call him Erskine!) and Sara Bard Field were introduced by none other than Clarence Darrow as progressives that should know each other. They both individually were activists for worker’s right and women’s suffrage, but together they advocated for Free Love. Their story spans many years and thousands of letters that reveal much about them and their struggles and the times in which they lived.

“Bohemians West: Free Love, Family and Radicals in Twentieth Century America” by Sherry Smith covers the story. The author spoke to us about the central characters, the correspondence and the writing of the book.
