Added: Nov 24 2012
Frontier Fighters portrays monumental incidents in the adventurous journeys westward of the American pathfinders and pioneers who led a life of almost continual hardship and peril in their quest for excitement and fortune. Recounting the enterprise and valor of those who explored the far west we must not overlook the heroic roles that the missionaries played in this epic drama of wilderness conquest. One of the first and most noted of northwest missionaries was Dr. Marcus Whitman the Yankee physician and missionary who sacrificed his life to bring the Christian religion to the painted red savage of the western mountains and plains and to save the pacific northwest to America in 1834.
