Wildlife Activist's Extraordinary Life, Untimely Death

Wildlife activist and filmmaker Joan Root was murdered in 2006 at her home in Nairobi, Kenya, when invaders broke through her bedroom window and shot her with AK-47s. The crime was never solved, but her life and violent death is the subject of a new book, Wildflower: An Extraordinary Life and Untimely Death in Africa.

Host Scott Simon speaks with author Mark Seal about Root's work.
