Seattle author Martha Brockenbrough discusses her new book "Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary," a biography for young people, which delves into Hamilton's early life, ambitions, and his groundbreaking role in government. Brockenbrough talks with author and host Nancy Pearl about how she drew on her diverse experience in journalism, research and nonfiction to bring the complex, passionate, brilliant and flawed Hamilton to life. Hint, her interest in Hamilton and the founding fathers was ignited long before the hit musical "Hamilton." Brockenbrough explains she aimed to bring a new understanding to a Hamilton, a man she maintains was motivated by love.
