Steve Inskeep Talks About "Jacksonland"

Penguin Books

NPR's Steve Inskeep is a familiar voice to millions of Americans, from his work on "Morning Edition," heard on the music services of JPR. 

But even public radio has its limits when it comes to in-depth reporting. 

So Inskeep is the author of a fresh book on President Andrew Jackson and his efforts to remove Native Americans from the South. 

The book is called Jacksonland.  Steve Inskeep is on one of those whirlwind media tours in which he sits for bunches of short interviews.  We get him for ten minutes at the back of today's show.
