"Travels with George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy"

Aired on Tuesday, September 28th.

On this edition of ST, we speak once again with the historian and bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick, whose newest book is a fisrt-person hyrid of American history, travel writing, and personal reflection. The book is "Travels with George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy." It retraces four different trips that the newly-elected President Washington took throughout the ex-colonies comprising this country, speaking-engagement tours that our first Chief Exectuive made at a time when the United States of America was still a rather unconnected and quarrelsome political experiment. The work is, per the Boston Globe, "quintessential Philbrick -- a lively, courageous, and masterful achievement."
