Here And There with Dave Marash

The medical missionary Marcus Whitman is the martyr hero of one of the great legends of the American Northwest. Unfortunately the story behind the legend, a cross-country trip to the White House to save Oregon from a British takeover was almost entirely untrue.  Author Blaine Harden's new book, Murder at the Mission: A Frontier Killing, Its legacy of lies and The Taking of the American West replaces the legend -- made up by Dr. Whitman's life-long rival and enemy -- with the facts.
