"On the Road," Present at the Creation

Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel On the Road is considered one of the defining works of the Beat Generation. As part of NPR's Present at the Creation series, Morning Edition's Renee Montagne looks at how the book, and its stories of Kerouac's frenzied cross-country adventures, came to be.
