This week's guest is Peter Stark, bestselling author of Astoria, Young Washington, and now the newly released Gallop Toward the Sun: Tecumseh and William Henry Harrison's Struggle for the Destiny of a Nation. Peter's new book explores a critical period of early U.S. history overlooked and not well understood. In this episode Justin asks Peter about his career transition from adventure journalism to history books, Peter describes a forgotten, yet formative part of American history, and ruminates on his approach to telling the nuanced, messy, complicated stories of our nation's history.
