In Pursuit of the Nez Perces: The Nez Perce War of 1877
In Pursuit of the Nez Perces: The Nez Perce War of 1877
by O.O. Howard, Duncan McDonald, Chief Joseph, Linwood Laughy
Three unique perspectives on the last of the great Indian wars of the west. 
Through the words of General O.O. Howard, first published in 1881, you'll observe the 1300-mile panorama of the war from the viewpoint of the commander of the pursuing U.S. troops, who wrote his account in an attempt to justify what many at that time and since have called an indefensible lack of military vigor. 

From the 1878 news articles of Montana reporter Duncan McDonald, you'll hear the voices of those Nez Perces who fled during the last hours of the war across the border to the safety of Canada and who for years afterwards bitterly, sadly, defined the war as a friendship forgotten, a trust betrayed. 

Finally, through the voice of the famed Chief Joseph, whose oft quoted line, "From where the sun now stands I shall fight no more forever," drew a conclusion to the 4-month long saga, you'll witness the personal and cultural pride, strengths and sufferings of the pursued. 

Never before have these three contradicting testimonials to the much debated military campaign of the Nez Perce War of 1877 been brought together, side-by-side, for you consideration, your judgement, your enlightenment. The Publisher

That All People May Be One People, Send Rain to Wash the Face of the Earth
by Chief Joseph
Book Description: Famed Nez Perce leader and orator Chief Joseph speaks of the earth's natural world, relationships among peoples, justice, war and his own life. His truthful, wise and gracefully spoken words were first recorded during an 1879 post-Nez Perce War interview in Washington, D.C., and first printed in the North American Review. What he said to the world then remains equally profound today.
