Summary
The Nez Perce Indian War was the outstanding front-page story in American newspapers during the late summer of 1877. Chief Joseph's supposedly impossible retreat from Idaho into Montana across the impregnable Bitterroots was a piece of military strategy so spectacular as to elicit comparisons with the greatest of Napoleon's maneuvers. It is fitting that Yellow Wolf, the last great Nez Perce warrior, should be the one to reveal the entire history of the Nez Perce revolt against oppression, their ultimate gesture against the loss of their immemorial homeland, as it culminated in this dramatic struggle. In addition to Yellow Wolf's day-by-day account of the entire war, this volume includes a special appendix of more than a dozen eye-witness narratives by Indians who witnessed the decisive battle of the Big Hole
