Kieran Doherty

Explorers, Missionaries, and Trappers:

Trailblazers of the West

“Using primary sources, [Doherty] profiles Juan de Oñate, a Spanish conquistador; Eusebio Kino and Junípero Serra, Spanish priests; as well as John SutterJohn McLoughlinMarcus and Narcissa WhitmanPeter 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.”
