The thrilling account of Presbyterian missionary Marcus Whitman who, along with his godly and courageous wife Narcissa, was a missionary to the Indians in the Oregon Territory in the 1800s.
Whitman was also a doctor, a patriot of the best sort, and a trailblazing pioneer who earned the friendship and respect of even mountain men such as Jim Bridger. Though he is little remembered today, Marcus Whitman risked everything to evangelize the Indians. Even fewer Christians know the true story of Whitman's epic and successful effort to also secure the Oregon Territory for America in order to preserve and propagate a strong Evangelical and truly Protestant witness there, while also preventing the native people from falling under the darkness of Romanism. Here too, Whitman nearly lost his life on numerous occasions. In the end, Marcus and Narcissa sealed their testimony for Jesus with their own blood, slaughtered by some of the Indians to whom they ministered.
