A Missionary Saga - Season 4
The People in Their Lives
In 1836, Marcus and Narcissa Whitman established a mission to the Cayuse Indians near what is today Walla Walla, Washington. The Whitmans' lives, as with most of us, were filled with people streaming in and out, each with his or her own agenda.
