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