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.… (mehr)

This is the story of the Nez Perce being driven from their homeland told by a warrior. His perspective is different than the usual history books and is interesting to hear.

Yellow Wolf the warrior chief of the Nez Perce war against the US Calvery. The story was collected by Whorter directly from Yellow Wolf over several years. History at it's best. ( )

A cogent timeline synthesis of nearly thirty years of interviews with one of the major surviving Native American fighters of the Nez Perce War. Supporting and dissenting views are offered where applicable. Most interesting to me were the accounts of McWhorter's visits to the battlefields of the Nez Perce War in the company of Yellow Wolf and a handful of other surviving warriors. McWhorter does a sensitive subject great justice. I recommend this book. ( )
