In 1846, when it seemed the Latter-day Saints had few friends outside their own ranks, there came a stranger from the east into their camps on the Missouri River. His name was Thomas L. Kane. During his time with them he became convinced that they were a mistreated and a suffering people, worthy of his help. And thus began a powerful friendship that would span nearly four decades. The episode features the scholarship of Matthew Grow, David Whittaker, and Richard Bennett.
