An excellent place of reporting on a timely subject, Free China -- graphic, vivid, running the gamut from humor to grim tragedy, and leaving one with the feeling that the Chinese will ultimately win. The young author has used her first hand sources of observation and information to set down not only a record of her travels but her surprisingly mature evaluation of the fighting Chinese and the situation up to 1940; she was too soon to witness the apparently widening rift between Communists and Central Government. Miss Homer was delegated by the Interdenominational Church Committee for China Relief as press correspondent. The book is closely packed with stirring details of her experiences, with intimate personal pictures of the individuals molding China's fate, with an analysis of what is going on behind the lines. Her conclusions are favorable to the Chinese Christians; to the morale of the Chinese, to the spirit of national unity.
