Duration: 0:24:10

Description: Joni Mitchell is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters in modern times. Her seminal albums, from the late 1960s through the late 1990s, sold millions of copies and influenced two generations of female and male artists who have followed. Now, a new authorized biography, "Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell," offers a deep portrait of the 74-year-old Mitchell, her rise, her body of work, and personal life. NewsHour Weekend's Phil Hirschkorn recently spoke to the author, David Yaffe.
