“Using primary sources, [Doherty] profiles Juan de Oñate, a Spanish conquistador; Eusebio Kino and Junípero Serra, Spanish priests; as well as John Sutter, John McLoughlin, Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, Peter De Smet, and Brigham Young. . . . The treatment of the trailblazers is very balanced, with discussions of each person’s strengths and weaknesses as well as explanations of how their settlements affected Native populations. . . . It gives readers a clear perspective on the differing motives for white settlement and will be an excellent report source.”
