The devoutly Christian Marcus and Narcissa Whitman left home and family to establish a mission in the far west territories. In 1836, Narcissa was the first woman of European descent to cross the Rocky Mountains.

Narcissa was but 39 years old when she, her husband, and nine others were murdered at their mission near Walla Walla, Washington in 1847. These letters constitute some of the last letters she wrote to family back in New York.

Included is a letter to her sister by one of the massacre survivors and is one of the earliest accounts of that horrible day.

For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
