Book Lust with Nancy Pearl Featuring Blaine Harden
Author and journalist Blaine Harden joins Nancy Pearl to discuss his book "A Frontier Killing, Its Legacy of Lies, and the Taking of the American West." The book dismantles a bogus legend that turned failed missionaries Marcus and Narcissa Whitman into great American heroes, justified devastating white conquest, and created a lasting false history about the founding of the Pacific Northwest. Also, Harden reveals what he reads in his spare time and tells Nancy how he feels about Hemingway.
