Matt Crawford speaks with author Derek Baxter about his book, In Pursuit of Jefferson. In 1784 Thomas Jefferson was reeling from personal and professional loss, this led him to Europe to clear his mind and to explore. More than 200 years later, stuck in a rut, Derek Baxter discovers Jefferson's guide to that trip- Hints for Americans Traveling Through Europe, that would be the seed for this phenomenal book. Baxter takes us along on his physical, emotional and historical journey in this personal story of discovery and evolution as he follows in Jefferson's European footsteps. An unfiltered and honest look at our history and ourselves. I hope you will all give this a read.
