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.
