"Dr. Drury considered this two-volume work his culminating study of the Protestant missionaries in Oregon. In comparison with his Marcus Whitman, M.D., published in 1937 by Caxton of Caldwell, Idaho, this is greatly expanded and entirely new work. A product of forty years of study, Drury wove his extensive knowledge of primary source material into a detailed narrative which is heavily footnoted and documented." - Clark & Brunet 77.
