9/4/07: Blood and Thunder

Salt Lake City, UT – Today on RadioWest, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with the writer Hampton Sides. His book Blood and Thunder is about the epic conquest of the American West. It's a story with heroes and villains - at the center of it all is Kit Carson, the legendary trapper, scout and soldier. Doug talked to Sides about the conflict between Manifest Destiny and the actual lives of the people in the West. (Rebroadcast)
