Sally Jenkins was interviewed about her book, The Real All Americans: The Team That Changed a Game, a People, a Nation, published by Doubleday. In her book she recounts the history of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, a boarding school for Native Americans founded by abolitionist Lieutenant Colonel Richard Henry Pratt in 1879.
