On At Home With Authors, we like to call on historians to help us process the dizzying developments of our time. Nathaniel Philbrick's latest book, about George Washington and the battle at Yorktown, is called In The Hurricane's Eye. It feels like that title fits our moment. As an author of early American history, Nat is used to immersing himself in tumultuous times. In this 28 minute conversation, he searches his body of work to help us imagine what might be on the other side.
