KIRKUS REVIEW

More fiction than history, this fictionalized biography of Marcus Whitman, missionary doctor instrumental in the progress of the Oregon Territory project. The narrative gives full play to the famous romance between Marcus and Naroissa Prentiss, the dramatic journeys, missionary work and the massacre in which both lost their lives. Marcus Whitman is a dramatic figure, and this is a dashing glimpse of the man and his times.
